Going Green Expo opens on World Environment Day
The Going Green Expo 2008 will open at the Melbourne Exhibition Centre on World Environment Day, Thursday 5 June 2008. The four-day event will provide businesses and consumers with the opportunity to explore a wide range of ‘green’ consumables, commercial products and technologies which offer a more sustainable and environmentally friendly approach to life in the workplace and at home.
“Our vision for Going Green is to provide a complete A to Z of sustainable solutions in the one place, and in doing so, to demonstrate how achievable and cost effective ‘going green’ can be,” said Going Green event manager Anthony Doran.
“As more and more ‘green’ products and solutions come onto the market, it’s becoming easier to draw cost comparisons between the environmental ‘nasties’ and ‘friendlies’ that are available and to see how you can actually save money and the environment by being green.”
The expo is designed to accelerate awareness of environmental issues and demonstrate how going green is easier than ever before — with modern technology and the latest developments that don’t cost the earth being showcased at the event.
The Going Green Expo will showcase products and solutions for everything from agriculture, air quality, recycling and waste, carbon trading and offset programs and cleaning, to clothing, textiles, design, food and beverage, health and beauty, office supplies, organic produce, travel and eco tourism and green IT.
Expo highlights include ‘The Green Village Pavilion’, sponsored by Village Green, ‘Go Organic’ food, wine and beer, the Green IT feature and a comprehensive range of free seminars from industry experts and much, much more.
A series of free seminars will be held on the show floor covering a range of topics such as climate change, carbon trading and practical applications for sustainability in the workplace and at home. A number of case studies and ‘how to’ presentations will also give business visitors and consumers tips and insight into the easy ways to ‘go green’.
