A few years ago, the concept of green living was on the fringe, but it isn’t anymore. So many businesses are embracing eco-consciousness: it’s now happily a way of life for many people. If you are one of those people, you’ll want to hightail it down to the Green Living Show at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre in Toronto from March 27-29, 2015.
The Green Living Show features presentations and exhibitors showcasing their green products and services in the areas of food, health & beauty, home & garden, fashion & gear, transportation & travel, and green living resources.
