McAllen Green Living Expo Update .. It was great!

Saturday October 11 saw the "new" McAllen Convention Center hosting the first annual Green Living Expo sponsored by the City of McAllen.  By 10:00 A.M the halls were packed with convention goers seeking green alternatives to save money and save the environment.  Guest speakers packed the educational sessions and free trolley rides to Falling Waters eco-subdivision.

One of the most popular displays (besides ours :)) was by South Texas Renewable Energy who promoted their solar technology.  Deane Munal, the owner, helped attendees to understand how solar works and why it works so well in the Rio Grande Valley.  For more information on their solar products click here.

We displayed a 5' x 5' Duro-Last Roof featuring rooftop garden trays and beautiful live plants.  Also popular was our energy suitcase which features a black roof versus a white roof under a heat lamp.  The black roof soared to over 175 degrees but the white Duro-last roof stayed a cool 107 degrees.

The McAllen Chamber of Commerce and Keep McAllen Beautiful staff did a great job keeping everything organized and exceptional.  If you have more pictures of the show please post them here.  Otherwise join us next year as we keep McAllen green for years to come.
