Green living show Toronto…
During the last few years my interest in green living increased significantly. The term is of course very broad and I am just at the beginning of my journey but educating myself and sharing my knowledge became a big passion. It all started with eating habits. Being aware of what you eat and where the food comes from is very important to our family. Then we changed other aspects of living. Eliminating use of the car whenever possible, recycling and repurposing, making conscious purchase decisions. Reading labels and the list of ingredients is a must. The place from where the product comes from is also important. With access to the internet it is so much easier to get the information or buy desired products, but our favourite way is by attending shows and small events where you are able meet with producers, ask questions and touch the actual product. Just recently, on Sunday we went to Toronto to the Green Living Show. The day was absolutely beautiful so we took the GO train – the green way! The event was taking place at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre and we loved every minute of that. So many vendors with a variety of products. From jewellery and kitchen utensils through fashion, cosmetics and cars. The place was very busy which only proves that many of us are interested in ways of living a green life, but because of that it was very difficult to take good pictures ;)Luckily, we managed to snap a couple which I’m more than happy to share with you!
