The event was created by BIOS founder, Steve Schappert of Brookfield. The BIOS Philosophy as defined by Wikipedia is the study and application of green, healthy, holistic, organic, sustainable, energy efficient living, and is closely related to the philosophies of ethics, logic and aesthetics. The Bios Philosophy: “You can do well by doing good”, is unique in that it teaches people that they can be successful and prosperous while doing the right thing. You can help people, save the environment and boost the economy, all at the same time. You can also inspire others to do the same! As the needs of others become as important as the needs of the individual, the world gains the ability to change like never before. The BIOS concept was first articulated by Stephen Schappert in 2004 relevant to healthy home building and has evolved to its current definition.
Brookfield Goes Green will take place from 8 am on the 11th till midnight on the 13th of September more information can be found at http://biosislife.org

A Green Technology Party By: Scott Benjamin Brookfield businessman Steve Schappert has decided to retool his block parties of more than a decade ago as a way to promote the growing green technology industry. Mr. Schappert, who held a block party at Cadigan Park on Candlewood Lake Road in 1994 and near the Four Corners intersection of Federal Road in 1995 and 1996, is promoting the event through Bios Is Life, whose mission is “To create an organization that is a model of social responsibility, making our life green, healthy and sustainable.”He said that he encountered some logistical obstacles with the block parties held in the 1990s, such as businesses saying that they had to shut down so that they could sell their products at the block party across town at Cadigan Park. He said that, to address that issue, he acquired a town permit that would allow every business in Brookfield to hold an event to promote the use of green technologies during the Brookfield Block Party from Aug. 21-23.”Brookfield Goes Green,” he stated on the promotional flier. “One Town, One Party, One Goal….United E Stand.”Mr. Schappert said that he has long been interested in energy efficiency and protecting the environment and that even though people are buying energy efficient light bulbs and driving hybrid cars, “the world isn’t changing fast enough.”He said that two of the principal areas of energy savings are conservation and the co-generation of buildings, particularly antiquated structures that still use furnaces.Mr. Schappert said some of the restaurants that are sponsoring weekly organizational meetings in preparation for the block party will be serving organic food.He said he has had discussions, for example, with Greentree Toyota, which has its service department on Commerce Road, about having some of the hybrid Prius models from its showroom in Danbury on display at some of the businesses near the service center.”I’ve told the businesses that they should keep it simple and keep it informative,” Mr. Schappert said, noting that during the block parties in the 1990s there were such activities as fire truck displays, a health and wellness festival and talent shows. For more information, call Mr. Schappert at 203-994-3950 or visit http://www.biosislife.org Mr. Schappert also is attempting to develop a retail area that has been partially constructed on Railroad Street in New Milford just beyond the business parking area. He said the project was temporarily discontinued because the investor “backed out of it” six months ago but that he is pursuing other prospective investors.
‘Brookfield Block Party’ aims to promote every business in town (Today’s news Times)By Ethan FrySTAFF WRITERUpdated: 07/17/2009 10:38:51 PM EDTBROOKFIELD — Steve Schappert knows how to throw a party. A “Brookfield Block Party” he threw at Cadigan Field to feature local businesses in the 1990s drew hundreds to the area, and a couple of subsequent parties at the Four Corners were also successes.Schappert is now trying to revive the concept of a townwide party — this time with a focus on green, energy-efficient living — with a weekend celebration Aug. 21 to 23.The dates are meant to coincide with another popular area event — the Bridgewater Fair.”Everyone driving to the Bridgewater Fair has to drive through Brookfield,” Schappert noted, hoping that Brookfield businesses can benefit by siphoning off some of the cars going to and from the fair.”The theme is going green, and the concept is to do one thing to bring people in your door this weekend that promotes the whole green industry,” said Schappert.For example, Tom Phillips, vice president of Efficient Lighting & Maintenance on Del Mar Drive, said his company will offer free fluorescent bulb recycling to any business or resident of Brookfield.”We will also be having a cookout with free hot dogs and hamburgers for all residents,” Phillips added. “I think that the block party is a great way to help out all Brookfield residents. “By promoting local Brookfield-based businesses, we are helping the economy where it is needed most, here in our town.”This year’s event won’t be tied to a specific location, Schappert said, because he’s hoping every business in town will participate because of the convenience of not having to close their business to set up shop elsewhere. To that end, Schappert said, he received the “largest sign permit in the history of Brookfield,” which would allow every business in town to promote the block party for up to 30 days beforehand.”The response so far has been overwhelmingly positive,” he said of his canvassing of local businesses.”In simplest terms, it’s cooperative advertising. If everybody does a little, it still makes a huge impact.”Contact Ethan Fryat email@example.com at (203) 731-3477.Brookfield Block Party Aug. 21 to 23 Organizers hope every business in town will hold special promotions or sales promoting energy-efficient living and technology.
