DEP Takes Award-Wining Exhibit To NEPA Home And Garden Show

The Department of Environmental Protection will display its new interactive “DEP at Home” exhibit during the 13th Annual Northeastern Pennsylvania Home and Garden Show at the Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza from Thursday, Jan. 24 to Sunday, Jan. 26.

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 exhibit will feature a kitchen and garage that showcase appliances, building materials and alternative fuels to improve energy efficiency, 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 that children can ride to demonstrate that less effort is required to power energy-efficient light bulbs.

The NEPA Home and Garden Show offers visitors a chance to see the work of some of area’s finest builders and remodelers, visit an art, gift and gourmet area and watch home-improvement demonstrations. Celebrities such as Jeff Devlin, star of DIY Network’s “I Hate My Bath” and Harry Rinker, “The Collector Inspector” as seen on HGTV will be in attendance; Jeff will be discussing everything you need to know about kitchen & bath renovation and Harry is offering two free verbal appraisal on your antiques and family heirlooms!

The NEPA Home and Garden Show runs from 2 p. m.—7 p. m. on Friday, Jan. 24, 10 a. m.—7 p. m. on Saturday, Jan. 25 and 11 a. m.—5 p. m. on Sunday, Jan 26.
