“Australia is one of the highest waste producers in the world, recently ranked in the top five waste producing nations”
Welcome to the
Brisbane Eco Expo
“Let’s Save the World”
The Eco Expo is not about taking drastic measures to become 100% sustainable in all areas of your life, but instead encouraging each of us to take just one step toward being more sustainable. If we all take just one step, as a whole, we can make a significant difference.
“If you don’t recycle and put your glass in landfill, it can take 1 million years to break down.”
“Australians use enough plastic bags per year that if these were tied together they would stretch around the world 24 times.”
“A large-screen television turned on for 6 hours a day can generate half a tonne of greenhouse gas a year.”
“Did you know glass can be recycled over and over again? Today approximately 25% of your new glass jars and bottles are made from recycled materials.”
Join the Eco Expo
Australia is facing unprecedented social and environment changes, with climate change threatening epic disruption and hardship on a global scale. The Eco Expo is set to operate as a gateway to the flourishing green market in Australia and will be host to over 150 local and national exhibitors, offering both products and services to help our region make greener choices.
The aim of this event is clear- visit the Eco Expo to find exhibitors taking one or more steps toward making their company and products more sustainable. In turn, you as the consumer can learn about, and purchase products, to help take your one step towards sustainability.
Brisbane is Australia’s most biodiverse and sustainable city. It is also Australia’s fastest growing region, meaning we need to continually be smarter about how we manage finite resources, our space and waste, as well as looking to sustainable systems.
