WHAT SHOULD YOU BRING WITH YOU TO THE ECO EXPO?
Are you ready for Australia’s largest sustainability expo of the year!?
With the Eco Expo coming up soon, here’s what you should bring to the Eco Expo…
Here are some easy tips of what you should bring along with you to the Expo
The eco message is best served SHARED – so invite some friends to come along and take #oneecostep
Empty drink containers (recyclable)
Make sure you bring your recyclable drink containers to responsibly dispose of your soft drink bottles/cans and water bottles with TOMRA, Australia’s leading reverse vending system. If you don’t have any – ask your neighbours, friends or your local cafe!
Reusable water bottle
Don’t have one? There are several amazing options for purchase at the Eco Expo! If you do have one, bring it along to fill up at one of the Water3 refill station’s, or from Promethius Environment’s ‘WATER FROM AIR’ stations that are provided throughout the event!
Reusable bags are a must at this year’s expo, but if you forget there are several options for purchase inside from Sacked Store, Eco Bags and more! Don’t forget the first 200 visitors each day receive a FREE limited edition #oneecostep tote bag with exhibitor samples and products! Use your reusable bag to grab plenty of sustainable products throughout this event.
‘Fill your own’ jars and containers
To honour the no waste mindset, Exotic Bazaar and others are offering bulk-buy options in your own container (or one you purchase from . various exhibitors in the show … like Cheeki!). Exotic Bazaar is offering a fill-your-boots station where people can use their own containers and old spice jars and fill from your own DIY spice blends, all at a bulk price.
Clothing to donate
Lifeline’s $2 clothing sale is on inside the Eco Expo! They will also have donation bins for you to bring along your unwanted clothing – so we can continue the message of Slow Fashion.
Most importantly, your ticket! Tickets are available online (click here) or at the event. If you have a ticket already, please do NOT print. Just show the code on your smart phone, or we can find your ticket using your photo ID.
The Eco Expo encourages all attendees and exhibitors to enjoy the weekend sustainably. The following items will be banned: plastic bags, plastic bottles, plastic utensils, plastic straws and balloons.
The path to worldwide sustainability may be a long one, but it only takes #OneEcoStep to start! Take yours at the 2019 Eco Expo!
