2007 Cleveland Home and Garden Show - Green in more ways than one?

Above you see Erica W's REpower Solutions booth. Apparently she got a great deal of interest. She talked her way to loosing her voice on Saturday at the show. Unfortunately for the "green area" there were many empty tables, and few staff around at the non-profits tables. Of course some famous former manufacturers of lead paint had a token banner and info at the green building area as well (see below for the photo of the logo with the paint spill 'covering the earth')
One of the 'model homes' had solar from dovetail on the roof, and my fav, marmoleum linoleum on the floor in the 'bonus' room. The home had passive solar design, and a rain garden. Beyond that i bet the home theater inside burned more juice than the PV could crank out on a good Cleveland summer day! Rightsized, uh-huh.

There were no shortage of folks hawking 'energy star' environmentally preferable insulated concrete form (ICF) building products either. I counted at least 5
You would think they could drum up local staff to 'man' this table of theirs at the 'Green' area.
