The City of Charleston has partnered with key local organizations to make the Green Business Challenge (GBC) possible. For GBC participants, our partners are here to help!

Living Green Fest
Carolina Green Fair

Living Green Fest's purpose is to create excitement and enthusiasm for green products, services and technologies available to the residents of South Carolina using an environmentally responsible forum of education and entertainment. For the past 9 years, the event has been known as the Carolina Green Fair, but to more aptly represent the event, it has been renamed to Living Green Fest. The same programs will still be offered, but with additional resources to help attain a healthier and happier lifestyle.
