The annual Burlingame Green Fair is spearheaded by the Citizens Environmental Council Burlingame (CEC), a fiscally sponsored non-profit project of Acterra: Action for a Healthy Planet. The first fair was held in 2008, making this the longest running green fair on the peninsula.
The CEC is a group of volunteers whose mission is to champion a more environmentally and economically sustainable community. The organization provides leadership in local green efforts and an educational resource for residents, businesses and institutions. The CEC’s structure provides a vehicle for local residents to choose their environmental passions and make a difference in the community.
