Aims and objectives
We hope that people come to the Eco-Living Expo wanting to find out more about how to live sustainably and how to reduce their ecological footprint - particularly energy and water consumption, and waste.
Our aim is that every person leaves having learnt something about the environment, or a tip about how to tread more lightly on the earth.
Our event is powered by renewable forms of energy including wind, solar and bio-diesel.
Food scraps will be collected and composted and left-over food collected for donation.
