Going green is all the rage these days. Tampa is a place that has embraced becoming more eco-friendly - both for citizens and businesses. The city regularly hosts many events to teach people how to be more environmentally responsible.

For example, the Tampa Bay Sierra Club encourages folks to go native as they say - on its annual Earth Day. No, it's not about going naked. Really, it isn't. The theme is meant to promote using native plants in urban landscapes. Now, isn't that nicer than what you may have thought?!

The event typically features almost 100 different vendors in its celebration with green services and goods. One way a new business could really benefit from this kind of event is to have a virtual office. It would give it the cache it needs to make a difference and get a ton of attention for doing it!

Just think of all the exhibitors, community groups, and public to connect with! Most businesses demonstrate their products and services, so a business with a virtual office could use this as an opportunity to promote whatever it is they offer -- just by dovetailing it with their mode of business operations!

There is bound to be a ton of public, even non-profits, at these things that could use your products and services, too.

Another Earth Day event in Tampa is the one at the Performing Arts Center. Since they focus on the arts, any business affiliated with or interested in promoting the arts could do well to attend this event.

EarthFest has an annual theme and uses puppets, costumes, signs, music, songs, stories, poetry, and dancing to entertain and enlighten.

The Florida Aquarium in Tampa is also another place that really draws a big crowd for Earth Day. Its celebration includes living creature displays and features lots of eco-friendly vendors. There are also a variety of special environmental shows and tours to participate in.

Businesses with a virtual office could quite easily double or triple their business presence in Tampa, just by showing up to one of these fun events!
