Green Megatrends Exhibit
Become part of the World’s Largest Environmental & Calendar Quilt!

In about a year, the Green Megatrend quilts from each community will be joined together with the World’s Largest Environmental & Calendar Quilt below. You can add your logo to your community’s quilt.

You can also add your logo and business information to one of 24 framed exhibits. The quilt will travel for a full year in your community along with the 24 framed exhibits.

The Green Megatrends Exhibit of the National Green Museum® Exhibition is now a beautiful quilt as shown in the left sidebar (and also below). Please click on photos to enlarge.

Invitation to Be Part of the World’s Largest Environmental & Calendar Quilt
Please contact us at 641-451-5199 if you would like to help create or sponsor a quilt with photos from your community or a larger city nearby (see left sidebar). Custom photo fabric will be provided by Fabric on Demand. You can help present the quilt to your mayor or city council member. The quilt will then go on display at your community’s National Green Museum® Exhibition (and can travel in your community).

Within a year, before or after you sell the quilt, it can be joined with the World’s Largest Calendar Quilt at a national landmark such as the National Mall. Half the proceeds will support your community’s National Green Museum® Exhibition. Your business will receive thousands of dollars of publicity.

You will also receive your community’s HOPE Award (Hero of Planet Earth Award) and receive the National Green Museum® Exhibition for one month. Quilters will be inducted into their community’s Environmental Hall of Fame®.
