The Green Solutions Expo will return to Newton Centre on Sunday, Oct. 14 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., featuring a wide array of environmentally friendly products and services.

The annual event is part of Newton's Harvest Fair, which includes crafts, food, and family rides. It is sponsored by the Newton-Needham Chamber and Green Decade/Newton, and will showcase up to 50 exhibits designed to help reduce carbon footprints and save money at home and in business.

This year, the Expo will spotlight three new electric cars: the Ford Electric Focus, Nissan Leaf, and Chevy Volt. Harris Cyclery of Newton will also be demonstrating its folding bikes for commuters that fold up to briefcase size in less than 60 seconds.

Expo attendees can also enter a free raffle with prizes, including Red Sox and Bruins memorabilia, a five-pound bag of Pearls Premium ultra-low-maintenance lawn seed, gourmet mushroom kits, and a bag of fair-trade dark chocolate.

For more information about the Expo and Harvest Fair, visit www.newtoncommunitypride.org/harvest-fair.
