Madison Avenue and Silicon Valley might be pushing all things green into the mainstream, but the counterculture roots of the sustainable-living movement are still alive and well, and were showcased in bright hues last weekend at the 12th annual SolFest in Mendocino County, Calif.

Some 10,000 people attended the event, featuring alternative energy and green products ranging from the world's only solar-powered carousel to electric bicycles to wall structures made from recycled Styrofoam.
