Aims and objectives
Whether you’re already living an eco-friendly life or looking for a few ways to make a difference, our aim is that every person attending the Eco Living Expo leaves having learnt something new about caring for our environment.
Our aim is to accelerate the uptake of sustainable living in our local community through demonstrating practical ways to reduce our impact on the planet. The Eco Living Expo raises awareness on how the greenhouse effect is warming our planet and promotes the urgency of returning the Earth to a safe climate.
Through meeting the changemakers in our community, the Eco Living Expo inspires and motivates us all to take action on co-creating a sustainable future.
A Green Eco Living Expo
Our event is powered by renewable forms of energy including wind, solar and bio-diesel.
Green team volunteers are stationed at waste stations to assist in the correct disposal of waste, food scraps will be collected and composted, and left-over food collected for donation.
All stallholders, food vendors and workshops providers are screened to ensure their offerings are as sustainable as possible.
Drinking water stations are provided throughout the event site and patrons are encouraged to bring their own drink bottles, mugs and cups.
Plastic bottles, plastic bags or plastic straws are banned from the event to reduce the amount of single use plastic at the event.
Visitors are encouraged to take public transport, walk, or cycle to the event. A community shuttle bus is also provided for the local community and a bike valet service is provided to encourage people to cycle to the event.
