Ford is working diligently on changing the way the world moves. Mark Fields, President and Chief Executive Officer, declared that "at Ford, mobility is about far more than motion. It is really about progress. Human progress." Find out more about Ford's vehicles by riding in them at our festival!
Greenovate Boston Greenovate Boston is a movement - a way for everyone in the City to work together to improve our planet, communities, businesses, and daily lives. If every person in the City of Boston committed to five small, new actions the City could reach its 2020 climate goal sooner. These actions don't require a whole lifestyle change: it's as simple as switching to cold water when doing the laundry or dishes. Or making a car-free commute every other Friday. Or turning your computer off at night.
Isaacs has been serving the Boston and Philadelphia areas for over 20 years and is one of the finest independent moving companies in the country. It received an A+ from the Better Business Bureau. The company offers packing, moving, unpacking and storage services as well as international shipments. Isaacs' movers will help exhibitors move on and off the festival site, accommodating Boston GreenFest's wonderful participants. We could not run Boston GreenFest without the generous and kind help Isaac's provides year-in and year-out.
The MBTA, otherwise known as the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority, manages the Boston area's commuter rail, bus, subway and ferry systems. The MBTA generously provides ad space for Boston GreenFest on its Red and Orange subway lines.

Savers This sponsor brings a double benefit to every shopper. Not only does it help us recycle clothing, shoes, and household goods, but helps support the Epilepsy Foundation in its quest for remedies. Savers knows what the quadruple bottom line is - people, planet, profit and giving back. This wonderful company gave the opportunity to all of our designers to participate in a Project Runway style program to find clothes to upcycle and showcase in our SAVERS EcoFashion Show. Thank you Savers!
