Wednesday is the 45th annual Earth Day and the same day is the 6th annual Sustainability Fair.

This year the Fair has a new location but organizers say it still focuses on celebrating  services and practices that are good for the Earth.

Spokesperson Marc DeBrock says the effort began as a way to show how all of us can do things that's better long term...

'...just have a place where people can engage in discussion on a local level here. What you can do in your lives to be more sustainable...."

Earth Day is April 22nd, and organizers are gearing up for the fourth annual Sustainability Fair in Rhinelander.

Co-chair Ann Eshelman says it’s going to be the biggest one yet, with about 30 exhibitors ranging from green contractors to local farms.  

“It’s a wide variety of exhibitors.  We have people in the construction business, we have people in the gardening business, we have people in the retail business.  And we also have a lot of organizations that are conveying information about their sustainability mission.”
