Being a Sashay woman means that you are an individual, unique and unafraid to be yourself. That being said, the bond we share as Sashay women is that we love green–energized with being eco-friendly and a love for the environment! In 2010, Sashay Magazine had the opportunity to visit Chicago’s Green Festival for the first time, and we were awe struck. We found a festival filled with the best of green! Not only was it an easy one-day trip, it offered opportunity to network, mingle and meet renowned authors,
leaders and visionaries. We indulged ourselves in an endless stream of organic beer and wine, delicious

10-year-old ‘Party with a Purpose’! At the festival, you’ll experience a healthy buzz of 1000’s of adults and children mingling about the floor! If you are looking for home decor,
eco-friendly fashion, non-toxic children’s products and even office supplies,

hope you will sashay down to the Green Festival’s interactive
marketplace, where you’ll not only experience a community of
eco-friendly fun, but you’ll also find information and solutions to help
make your life healthier–socially, economically and environmentally.
This year, speakers include Amy Goodman, Jeffrey Smith, John Perkins and
Dr. Sharif Abdullah.
