Every spring we look forward to checking out the Green Living Show, in Toronto. In our quest to live an eco-friendly lifestyle, a trip to the show is a must-attend event. There is something really cool about the energy at the Green Living Show. From the exhibitors to the visitors, everyone is looking for ways to lead simpler, greener and healthier lives. Check out our 5 fun reasons to head to the Green Living Show this year. Even if you can’t attend, this list is bound to inspire you.
5 Cool Reasons to Visit the Green Living Show
Innovation There are so many super creative people working on innovative products that can improve our lives and our planet. The Green Living Show brings together these innovative pieces in one space. Imagine growing fresh produce in your kitchen with a Nutritower. Or, check out Canadian designed LIFT bike from Revelo. This bike is light and foldable – perfect for urban commuters. Dalinci Stainless Steel has created beautifully designed stainless steel food containers. These containers are not only beautiful, but their design mean they have no crevices for bacteria to hid, they are plastic free and dishwasher safe.
IKEA Sustainable Living We all know that IKEA has always been at the head of innovation when it comes to design and waste reduction. The IKEA Canada exhibit will provide visitors with an interactive space to learn all sorts of cool ways to reduce household waste, live healthier, save money and save the planet.
Food Foodies have not been forgotten at the Green Living Show. The Delicious Local Food & Drink Pavilion will showcase over 20 chefs, breweries and wineries. The chefs will be sharing family favourite recipes using local ingredients. In fact, Pfenning Farms is donating 300lbs of mishaped organic produce for the chefs to use…diverting this food from the compost pile. Foodies will also be inspired by the exhibitors in the health and food area of the show.
Eco Kid Zone The folks from EcoParent Magazine, Ontario Parks, NatraCare and Earth Day Canada have created an interactive play and learn area for kids. Visiting kids will have a blast exploring a campsite and learning how to fish. Earth Day Canada is hoping that Canadian families will get outside and play this Earth Day, so there will be plenty of space for kids to build, create and play.
Film Fest Catch a cool and eye opening film while at the Green Living Show. The Planet Focus Film Festival will be screening a line up of environmental films over the the course of the show – that are free to attend. Learn about the impact of climate change on Canada’s freshwater supplies, introduce yourself to the concept of eating bugs and take a trip inside the kitchen to discover indigenous food culture.
