Did you know that our first idea was to have a sustainability dinner at a restaurant downtown? Then we had the idea to do a brunch in a greenhouse. Finally we landed on the expo idea which includes a speakers panel of industry experts as well as sustainability companies showcasing their products and services to help us live in a way that doesn’t damage the planet. We learned a lot from our first expo and we keep learning each time we do one. Lets keep going!

Ps. were still thinking about that brunch in the greenhouse idea…

The amazing companies that were part of the event:

Green Calgary, Dryleaf, The Arctic Institute of North America, Ink of the Earth, Black Bird Tiny Homes, and Gypsy’s Caravan Adventure Hostel
