WHO WE ARE
The ‘Eco Expo’ is Australia’s largest sustainability expo open to the public. Sectors include Home & Living, Food & Health, and Family, Beauty & Lifestyle.
Whether you’re already living an eco-friendly life or looking for a few ways to make a difference, visit the Brisbane Eco Expo this September and find like-minded people in a marketplace buzzing with proud owners and users of the industry’s best organic, natural and sustainable products.
The theme for 2018 is ‘One Eco Step’, as the Eco Expo is not about pushing drastic measures but instead encouraging each of us to take just one step toward a sustainable lifestyle.
Take your #oneecostep at the Eco Expo, with all the information, products and support you need on your path.
Meet exhibitors from all industries as they come together to familiarise you with their one eco step, or to help you take yours.
Initiatives to encourage event attendees to take #oneecostep include ‘Eco Pledge’, ‘Eco Swag Bags’ for the event early-birds, a ‘Vegan Market’ zone, ‘The Commune Progressive Picnic’, plus special guest speakers with sustainability masterclasses, cooking demonstrations, DIYs, and seminars.
Each ticket purchased includes a $2 donation to your choice of one of three featured Eco charities, selected by a recycled token on entry to the event. Children under 14 free with paying guardian. Buy tickets online
The path to worldwide sustainability may be a long one, but it only takes #oneecostep to start! Take yours at the Eco Expo, Australia’s largest sustainability expo open to the public 10am-4pm daily, Friday 14 to Sunday 16 September 2018, at the Brisbane Showgrounds.
