This Week in Atlanta

The big event this week is the Go Green Atlanta exposition on Friday, Saturday & Sunday at the Cobb Galleria. There are over 225 exhibitors which I believe will make this the largest event of its kind ever here in Atlanta. There will also be a number of speakers talking on various topics relating to the green movement.
