Come to learn about easy and workable solutions to make your lifestyle more sustainable. Exhibitor booths fall into broad categories like Home & Garden, Energy & Green Building, Health & Wellness, Transportation, Environmental NGO, Recreation, and Green Business, plus there will be demonstrations, speakers and forums on the main stage, and activities spread over all three days of the event. Highlights include an Eco Youth Day Forum, the Green Toronto Awards, an Eco Fashion Show, and the Green Living Health Forum. There will also be an EcoKids Zone with crafts and games, Farm Fresh Fare (a selection of gourmet meals prepared with local, seasonal ingredients), and new for this year, the Good Eats Market! I'll be volunteering with Local Food Plus (LFP) to bring a farmers' market right to the heart of the show floor. It will feature growers and producers that are certified local and sustainable by LFP.
|Another Green Living Show perk!|
Last year, I had a great time at the Green Living Show. I discovered the Planet in Focus Environmental Film Festival, learned more about Bullfrog Power and AutoShare, signed my Buy to Vote pledge with LFP, sampled great food, and bought chemical-free personal care and home cleaning products. The best part? Gaining free admission by bringing in electronic waste for recycling! Here are the details:
Date: Friday, April 15th, to Sunday, April 17th
Time: 10 am to 9 pm on Friday and Saturday, and 10 am to 6 pm on Sunday
Location: Direct Energy Centre
Admission: $12, or free when you bring electronic waste for recycling.
I hope to see you there!
