Brisbane will go green this September as it plays host to Australia’s largest consumer sustainability expo in a move to help save the world.
Running from September 14 to 16, the inaugural Brisbane Eco Expo, will join the global fight against climate change and increased health concerns to raise awareness and connect Queenslanders with Australia’s diverse ‘green market’. The Brisbane Eco Expo is not about taking drastic measures to become 100% sustainable in all areas of your life, but instead encouraging each of us to take just one step towards being more sustainable. If we all take just one step as a whole, we can make a significant difference.
Held at the Brisbane Showgrounds, this marketplace style event will see more than 140 eco-friendly businesses congregate to offer natural, organic and sustainable products across dedicated sectors. These sectors include ‘home and living’, ‘health and food’, ‘beauty and lifestyle’, and ‘baby and kids’.
With Australia recently ranked in the top five worst countries for waste pollution, we need to make a conscious effort toward environmentally-friendly choices. Free seminars and innovative product demonstrations will be available, with keynote speakers discussing sustainable practices that can be implemented in our daily lives. As children are the future, families will also find a range of fun and engaging ‘How To’ workshops.
Visit the Eco Expo to find exhibitors taking one or more steps toward making their company and products more sustainable. In turn, you as the consumer can learn about and purchase products to help take your one step towards sustainability.
