There are 19 confirmed exhibitors for the event, including the Lions Club, Avenues to Independence, Working Bikes Cooperative, Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago, Buffalo Creek Clean Watershed Partnership, Buffalo Grove Park District and New Life for Old Bags.

Many exhibitors will be collecting recyclable materials, including shoes, eye glasses, hearing aids, books, batteries and plastic bags. Others will be teaching about topics such as rain barrel use and composting. Working Bikes won't be accepting bikes at this event but will do so later this summer at the farmers market.
