The 2017 Green Living Show is coming up this April 7-9, 2017 at the Metro Convention Centre in Toronto and I was invited to have a sneak peek at some of the vendors and new products that will be showcased at this year's show.
I have been to the Green Living Show many times and it's one of my favourite shows because it combines my favourite thing local Restaurants and food producers with a lot of new innovative products that are made to help the environment and not hurt it. There is something for everyone from baby clothes to cars and all sorts of products for your home and your body. It's a one stop shop if you care about your purchases being the best they can be for you and the environment.
I will be giving away 2 pairs of tickets on my Instagram page @lindamatarasso deadline to enter will be April 3rd and winners announced April 4th.
Some of the INNOVATIVE products that I previewed included:
Ritual box (thinkahlot.com) (pictured above), it's a box with all the things you would use for your legal marijuana. I don't know much about this but I have a feeling this might be a trendy gift item soon. There was also Canabis products made and consultations for pain management by Tweed Main Street Shop that are made with specific medicinal strength oils that are meant to be injested or put directly on the skin.
There was also a NutriTower (nutritower.com) planter that is meant to be used inside to grow herbs and vegetables with it's own lighting system. Grow your own food even in a small space because it's vertical growing.
There were faux rocks and planters made from Recycled Tires. The rocks look like real rocks even.
Also on hand were:
Crazy D's All Natural Soda (crazydlabs.com) Yoga Leggings (myinnerfire.com), Lift Bike (revelo.ca), Stainless Steel Containers (dalcinistainless.com) , Healthy Dog Treats (en.wilderharrier.com),, Vita Active Kit (fitglow.ca), The Black Out Bulb (blackoutbulb.com), Vegan Cashew Cheese (zengarry.com)
You will also find out about the new Certification label (CERT CLEAN) that will indicate products tested to be clean for your body with no harm to your health. The term Organic and natural don't mean anything in Skin Care products so this certification aims to make it easier for consumers to know which products have been verified to be safe.
There are so many products featured at the show that I can't even tell you about half of them in this post because there are just too many that you need to see to understand the benefits of the products.
There is an area just for food and drink where local restaurants, craft brewers, distillers and wineries sell small samples of their products.
The food vendors will serve flavours from all over the world some of them are:
- Hawthorne Food & Drink
- Santo Pecado
- Urban Acorn Catering
- The Magic Oven
- TC's MOMO
- Karam Kitchen
- B'Saha Restaurant
- De la Terre bakery cafe
- and more.
