Chicago Center for Green Technology

The Rogers Park Chamber of Commerce President, Bill Morton, and Secretary, Autumn Davids, spent Saturday June 16th, between volunteering for the Artists of the Wall Festival, at the Chicago Center for Green Technology's 10th anniversary.

We spoke with LiveRoof, who answered a multitude of our questions. LiveRoof puts a variety of plants on top of the roof's of homes, businesses, organizations, and institutions. The process is pretty simple: They check your roof to insure that there are no problems with leaking or are unable to hold the weight, they then help you pick out appropriate plants and then the work begins.

We also spoke with A Plus Pest. They have pine based chemicals to assist in getting rid of pests that won't harm you or your pets. They also have a nice mattress cover that traps bed bugs and kills them. It's even machine washable, for those who are like me and struggle with non-machine washable items.

There were many other people we spoke with about a multitude of things. Click the images below of the pamphlets we received to have a larger view.
