DEP Takes Award-winning Exhibit to Pittsburgh Home and Garden Show

DEP Takes Award-winning Exhibit to Pittsburgh Home and Garden Show

The Department of Environmental Protection will display its new interactive “DEP at Home” exhibit during the Pittsburgh Home and Garden Show at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center downtown from Friday, March 1, to Sunday, March 10.

DEP at Home is an interactive, educational exhibit fashioned into a home structure that features practices and products promoting energy efficiency and sustainable building materials as well as environmentally friendly and Pennsylvania-produced products for the home.

The three-room exhibit has a bathroom/laundry area, kitchen and living room that showcase d├ęcor, appliances and building materials that help improve energy efficiency, water conservation, radon awareness, air quality and other staples of environmental awareness. There is also an outdoor space that includes a dog house with green roofing and a bicycle children can ride to demonstrate that less effort is required to power energy-efficient light bulbs.

The Pittsburgh Home and Garden Show is the largest event of its kind in Pennsylvania, with more than 1,600 vendors spanning more than nine acres. In addition to the DEP at Home exhibit, the Pittsburgh Home and Garden Show will feature a kitchen idea center, garden resource center, “Home Ice” synthetic ice rink and a $50,000 home makeover give-away.

The Pittsburgh Home and Garden Show runs from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, March 1 and 2, and March 8 and 9. On Sunday, March 3 and March 10, it is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. From Monday, March 4, to Thursday, March 7, it will be open from 4 to 10 p.m. Admission is $10 for adults and $4 for children 12 and under. The Convention Center is at 1000 Fort Duquesne Blvd., Pittsburgh, PA 15222.

The DEP at Home exhibit goes hand-in-hand with a series of quarterly webinars, also called DEP at Home, produced by the agency to educate families about energy-efficient and environmentally friendly practices they can implement in their homes. The next webinar, Watch your Waste, will be on Wednesday, April 3, from 7 to 8 p.m.

DEP created the exhibit through a grant provided by the U.S. Department of Energy’s State Energy Program.
