Go Green Expo, the brainchild of Bradford Rand and his team at Expo International, was conceived after a viewing of the film "An Inconvenient Truth." It prompted the question, "How can we make a difference?" This question resonated with Rand and his team and Go Green Expo was born.
A truly unique event from the ground up, Go Green Expo will change not only the public's perception of environmentalism but also how events like this are produced and managed. Inviting companies large and small to showcase what they are doing to reduce their respective carbon footprint, consumers will have hands on experiences with "eco-friendly" alternatives to current everyday products and services.
Even the event itself is environmentally friendly utilizing a ZERO Carbon footprint approach to event production. Biodegradable trash bags, eco-friendly printing, table coverings, recycled signs, compostable sponsor banners and more. Event waste will be separated and sorted to ensure the least amount of refuse going to the landfills. Staff travel and a portion of every ticket that is purchased will be carbon offset.Go Green Expo invites both consumers & business owners to learn more about what is readily available so they can take steps to purchase earth friendly products & services to make our communities greener, one city at a time.
Among the speakers at the LA event are Ed Begley, Jr and Mariel Hemingway, and Judy Edelman (The Accidental Housewife) to name a few. Stop by the Los Angeles Convention Center January 23-25/09 for great green ideas and products.
