Well, I don’t know about you, but I know where I’m going to be this weekend, and that’s happily wandering the aisles of the Natural & Organic Products Exhibition, on at the CTICC from tomorrow (17-19 October).
Not only are there going to be stalls offering everything from natural nappies to organic wine, but there are also a rather daunting (in an exciting kind of way, if you’re me) number of shows, talks and discussions on all things sustainable and eco-friendly.
Hoohah! That’s green girl heaven, that is.
In case you’re wondering what it’s all about, here’s the scoop:
The Natural & Organic Product Exhibition provides the widest range of natural and organic products, sustainable technologies, services, information and practical advice under one roof!
Launched five years ago to support the global movement towards healthy and ethical practices, the Natural & Organic Product Exhibition is dedicated to inspiring South Africans to view their lifestyle and health choices as indivisible.
The Natural & Organic Products Exhibition is committed to growing the local industry sector as well. Globally, the organic industry is the fastest growing industry segment. Climate change and the resulting global food and energy crisis have put an even bigger spotlight on the need for sustainable economic solutions and environmentally conscious lifestyle practices. It provides a classic win- win situation: supporting natural and organic principles and products is not only good for the health of people and planet, but it makes irrefutable business sense too
Visitors to the Show are encouraged to explore, experiment and network, secure in the knowledge that they are supported by the best range of quality local organic, natural, eco-friendly, socially aware products and services. Special innovation demonstrations and interactive lifestyle areas are specifically designed to empower individuals to make informed choices.
Hmmm… something tells me it might take a little more than the few hours I’d set aside to get through it all.
