The annual Go Green Expo is always a great day out and a chance to check out lots of the newest innovations in the areas of health, wellness and beauty – the number of new discoveries you can make there is seriously a revelation. Apparently this year the expo will be bigger than ever before, with the number of eco-conscious Kiwi brands increasing to over 160.
Organisers cite a recent study which showed that 76 per cent of New Zealanders feel personally tasked with creating a more sustainable environment. With this rapid change in attitude, everyday Kiwis are now more aware of their lifestyle choices and the impacts it has on their health, says Go Green Expo CEO, Damien Hochberg.
“Over the years sustainability has become more and more mainstream,” he says. “Three quarters of New Zealanders are more conscious of the impact their environment has on their health, the dangers of certain modern pharmaceuticals and processed foods.”
New Zealand’s largest organic, natural, sustainable, green living show, it will be held at Auckland’s ASB Showgrounds on the 16th and 17th of April. There will be a full lineup of speakers, workshops and exhibitors, each of whom are leading the way with products and services for a more sustainable, healthier lifestyle.
Among the plethora of speakers and exhibitors are three standout clean, green living experts: well-known nutritionist, Claire Turnbull (below); Sunniva Holt from the Daily Raw and Buffy Gill from Be Good Organics. Go Green’s Hochberg says Claire, Sunniva and Buffy are huge draw cards for Kiwis who are passionate about sustainable living.
“Nutritionist, Claire Turnbull, will be sharing tips on “Making Healthy Happen, even when life is Super Busy” with ideas and inspiration to help you look and feel good, eat well and keep active, even when you life is full on!”
“Locally sourced ingredients, ancient practices, certified organics and allergy and cruelty free products will be on display from consumer goods, food & beverage products and health & beauty to eco building products and services,” Damien says.
When: Saturday, 16th April and Sunday the 17th of April, 10am-5pm
Where: ASB Showgrounds, 217 Greenlane West, Greenlane, Auckland
