We’re very excited to tell you about all of the wonderful things you will see at the Living Green Expo this year, but we didn’t want to forget to tell you about the one thing you WON’T see: garbage. We’re partnering withEureka Recycling to make this year’s expo another zero-waste event!
Eureka Recycling is proud to partner with the Living Green Expo to create the largest Zero-Waste event in the state. At the 2011 Living Green Expo 22,000 attendees and 300 businesses gathered and were inspired to take action to live healthier and more sustainable lives – while generating almost no waste.
There were 1,272 pounds of materials composted while 2,125 pounds were recycled. On average, less than one-fifth of a pound of trash was generated by each of the 22,000 attendees, and 93% of all discards generated at the event were prevented from being wasted. Instead these resources were turned into nutrient-rich soil or recycled into new products. This year, we plan to do even better. If you want to help, sign up to volunteer with our Zero Waste crew!
Don’t miss out. Be a part of the zero-waste revolution and get your tickets online today! If you’re a vendor and you haven’t already, sign up to exhibit at the Living Green Expo and take advantage of the trash slashing buzz! Visit www.LivingGreenExpo.MN for more information.
