From Tosa Green Summit:

On Saturday, the people of Wauwatosa will gather for the third Tosa Green Summit, once proposed to be held biennially but now switching to an annual schedule due to its popularity.

The free informational open house, dedicated to educating the community about environmental sustainability, will be held from 1 to 3 p.m. in both the lower  and upper Civic Center rooms of the Wauwatosa Civic Center, 7725 W. North Ave.

The event will also feature more than 25 exhibitors in the Lower Civic Center Room, including:

The Tosa Green Summit is organized by local Wauwatosa residents who care about sustainability and want people to be aware of and learn from organizations that are focused on improving the environment.

Significant assistance has been provided by the Green Neighbor program and the City of Wauwatosa Energy Committee. Sponsoring the event this year are American Transmission Co. and .

Jeff Roznowski, alderman in the 6th District and local community activist, spearheaded the effort to launch this event in 2009.

"Wauwatosa is a community known for its green space. I would like it to also be recognized as a sustainable community," Roznowski said. "Our diverse lineup of exhibitors will provide a variety of ways that we can become sustainable, as individuals and as a city.

"The documentary ‘Bag It’ will make you consider if your life is too plastic and offer ideas on how to change your behavior."
