Environmental expo aims to generate excitement green products, services
THE second annual Big Green Expo starts tomorrow at 9am tomorrow at Stirling High School and runs until Sunday.
It might be a new venue but there will still be an exciting programme of educational talks and a market of products to help you become greener.
We are targeting businesses to market goods that are eco-friendly, any talks or demonstrations by world, nature or ocean conservation societies, arts and crafts whereby recyclable materials are used – basically anyone that has something of interest that sticks to our green theme.
You are invited to browse the unique stalls, showcasing products and services with green, sustainable bases and listen to talks by experts.
The Big Green Company has partnered with the Stirling High School Eco Club to host the event, with support from Wild Coast FM, Local Yokal project, Minuteman Press, Indwe Environmental Consulting, Border-Kei Chamber of Business and the GO! & Express.
The expo aims to educate the community about the importance of the environment.
Talks will include the importance of bees for the environment, wind farms, greening a school, water wars, invasive plants, environmental aspects of vegan- ism, greening your home.
Some talks are specifically aimed at school pupils. The full programme of talks is available on the GO! & Express Facebook page.
The idea behind the expo came from local environmentalist Richard Patten.
There will also be a flea market on the Sunday and people are asked to bring things made from waste materials to sell at the market.
Patten has encouraged all schools to come along, enjoy the event and learn a bit about the environment.
Drinks and snacks will be available. Space is still available for some 3m x 3m stands and craft market stalls.
