MN Plug-In Vehicle Owners' Circle (MNPEVOC) members volunteer in events like this to show EVs, share their experience with attendees and answer any question you might have about electric vehicles. Transportation electrification is the most effective way to cure our oil addiction and drastically reduce air pollution. EVs are also really fun to drive and save you money with lower energy and maintenance costs so there are many reasons to shift to driving electric. Stop by to talk with us about what it is like to own, drive and charge a plug-in vehicle in Minnesota.

a backyard farm

At A Backyard Farm, we design, install, plant, maintain and harvest organic vegetables for residential and organizational clients. We use an intensive gardening method, which is especially suited for the urban setting.  We build a variety of raised beds and bring in a special soil mixture as well as being organic from start to finish.  We utilize vertical growing structures and “succession planting” to maximize production in a small space.  This will be our 11th season of growing food in the Twin Cities and would love to share it with you. 

There is nothing more sustainable than growing your own food.  It is harvested and brought directly to your kitchen.  There isn’t any shipping or packaging involved.  Chemical treatments to keep your food fresh are not incorporated as well.  All that needs to be added to your farm plot is organic compost which can be made on site using current compost practices.

 PaintCare makes it easy for households and businesses to recycle leftover house paint, stain, and varnish at no charge! There are many convenient locations across Minnesota to drop off paint for recycling, including retailers (paint, hardware, and reuse stores) and local household hazardous waste (HHW) facilities. In addition, we offer a free large volume pick-up service for individuals, organizations, or businesses with 200+ gallons of leftover house paint. The public can find a variety of free leftover paints at select HHW facilities throughout Minnesota or purchase recycled-content paint from retailers located in the Twin Cities.

Through the American Coatings Association, paint manufacturers created PaintCare Inc., a non-profit stewardship organization, to run recycling programs in states and jurisdictions as they pass paint stewardship laws. PaintCare currently runs paint recycling programs in Minnesota, as well as California, Colorado, Connecticut, District of Columbia, Maine, Oregon, Rhode Island, and Vermont.

resized primary-zr-logo1200pxzerorez

At Zerorez, we pride ourselves on our dedication to using the best, most innovative and sustainable products available in the market to clean carpets, upholstery, area rugs, tile and grout.

Zerorez cleaning services are based on our unique Powered Water® technology. Powered Water is enhanced water that has been electrolyzed and oxidized to create a powerful cleaning solution that cleans like detergent, but is safe enough to drink. Powered Water acts as an effective cleaning agent, so we don't need to use harmful soaps or detergents to clean. Soapy residue bonds to the carpet fibers and continues to attract dust and dirt over time which makes your carpet and home get filthier faster. In short, Zerorez's patent-pending cleaning process means your carpets dry faster and stay cleaner longer.

Zerorez takes this sustainable cleaning philosophy when treating common household issues such as pet stains and odors. Our proprietary, all-natural product neutralizes affected areas to safely and effectively destroy bacteria, killing the odor at the source. The Zerorez cleaning process is non-toxic and 100% safe for pets and kids.
