If you took part in the recent lights out for Earth Hour and were left wanting to learn more about sustainable eco living, then the upcoming Eco Design Fair should be just the thing for you. The biannual eco design gathering was held at the URBN hotel in 2009, but is moving over to The Waterhouse hotel this year and will be showcasing eco-conscious designers and products to general consumers.
The Eco Design Fair is the city’s first such initiative that provides the community with green tools to support restorative, environmentally-positive design and lifestyles.
Upon entering the fair visitors are introduced to a dynamic retail and educational environment, where people from the city can shop for quality sustainable, organic, natural, non-toxic, recycled, ethical, energy-saving, and environmentally friendly products all at one central place.
The Eco Design Fair also serves as a local hotspot, where thousands of visitors come to shop and watch models strut down catwalks wearing the newest in eco fashion. People can also listen to live music acts, and cool down at the farmer’s market selling goods straight from their fields.
