I look forward to my visit to the Green Living Show each year, as there is lots of great food, products and interesting booths all in one space.
You still need to know how to determine if something is really green or greenwashing, and to ask questions and read labels. For example, I asked about a sandwich advertising that they marinated meat in orange soda, and when I asked what their orange soda was, they told me that they use canned conventional pop, which is obviously really bad, and the opposite of green! Overall, I had a great time and I highly recommend that you go visit this weekend. And, if you take e-waste, you can get in free – one ticket per electronic item that you want to recycle properly.
Here’s my photo guide to some of the highlights not to be missed from the show:
