Australia’s largest sustainability expo – Eco Expo – will soon return to Brisbane, and is set to be a favourite among the environmentally conscious and those eager to find small ways to minimise their global footprint without sacrificing the things they love.
After its success in 2018, the show will return with the theme ‘one eco step,’ to encourage each of us to take at least one simple step toward a more sustainable lifestyle. Initiatives to encourage visitors to get involved include the Lifeline $2 Clothing Sale with 20 tonnes (100 tables) of clothing to support slow fashion, the Eco Pledge, special guest speakers with sustainability masterclasses, cooking demonstrations, DIY’s and seminars.
There’s something for everyone at the Eco Expo with over 150 exhibitors and speakers spanning home, beauty, family, food and lifestyle. There will also be tiny houses on ground for visitors to explore and learn more about the Tiny House movement.
Celebrity speakers and environmentalist headlining this year’s event include the Environmental Cowboy Khoury Hancock; celebrity environmental scientist and sustainable fashion advocate Laura Wells as well as crowd favourites Eat Yourself Green founder, Larissa Tedesco; My Food Religion founder Sofie Van Kempen; and Kira Simpson, celebrity slow fashion and green living advocate at The Green Hub Online.
