Two sold-out bus tours in Beloit Thursday will focus on the city's environmentally 'green' side.

Visit Beloit Executive Director Martha Mitchell says among other things, the tour will feature the green roof gardens at ABC Supply and Beloit Memorial Hospital, reuse of historic buildings at Fairbanks Flats and the grocery store that features organic and locally-grown food.

Mitchell says Beloit's "America in Bloom" contest win this summer helped generate interest, and also Beloit's status as an 'eco-municipality'.
