These days, you can't swing a canvas grocery bag full of CFL bulbs without hitting something "green." Not that we're complaining: When was the last time a hugely popular trend was also hugely helpful to the environment? Still, with so much information and media saturation, it can be tough to know what's really best for the planet. Find solid A's to your environmental Q's today at Eco Expo. This stellar showcase, presented by the Missouri Botanical Garden and hosted at the Saint Louis Science Center (5050 Oakland Avenue), brings together numerous experts, educators, innovators and service-providers. Check out a model of a truly "green" home, enjoy organic food and wine, and meet dozens of people who have invested their lives and careers in keeping this big blue marble healthy. The Eco Expo runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday (April 18 and 19), and admission is free. Visit www.ecoexpostlouis.com or call 314-289-4400 for more information.
