Making the shift toward a more sustainable and eco-conscious life can sometimes be overwhelming as we grapple with where to start and how to change. However, any small shift toward sustainability can make all the difference. This year's theme 'One Eco Step' aims to encourage each of us to take just one step toward a more sustainable lifestyle. One step, however small, can go a long way in helping the environment and ultimately our own well-being.
One of the highlights of Eco Expo is the incredible line up of speakers that will present over the course of the three days. The presentations will cover a range of topics, all providing insight into sustainable practices that can be easily implemented in our day to day lives.
Whether you want to learn how to make your own soy candles, grow food in your backyard or balcony, design your own tiny house, shop sustainably or live waste free; Eco Expo has you covered.
