This weekend, the Green Festival Expo for sustainable living is coming to Los Angeles – and we’re going to be there!
The Green Festival Expo is America’s largest and longest-running sustainability and green living event, uniting brands, businesses, filmmakers, thinkers, and consumers in one vibrant, dynamic marketplace. It’s the must-attend event for anyone who’s interested in green living -- and we know that means you.
“The Green Festival Expo continues to gain momentum in Los Angeles as new and exciting speakers and celebrities will join an array of brands, partners, and speakers to feature the latest in sustainability across the country,” said Dr. Corinna Basler, president of Green Festivals, Inc. “We are excited to expand the plant-based offerings at this year’s show and provide even more food options that are healthy for our attendees and that help to combat climate change.”
This is the sixth year that the festival will be coming to the Los Angeles Convention Center. The festival will take place from September 16to September 18, with thousands of products and services to explore and a host of different events and panels to attend, including sustainable fashion shows, hands-on demos, and educational activities.
The Expo will be open on Friday from 12 to 6pm, on Saturday from 10 to 6pm, and on Sunday from 10 to 5pm. Tickets are available online, and free entry is granted to kids 16 and under and anyone who bikes to the event – just bring your helmet to the box office.
Events will include a discussion by actor and activist Ed Begley Jr. on energy efficiency in 2016, musician Moby addressing the effect of animal agriculture on the environment, free classes on Bokwa fitness and African dancing at the Valetta SuRae Fitness Pavilion, vegan cooking demos with Spork Foods, and screenings of several environmental documentary films such as "Cowspiracy", "Love Thy Nature", and "Speciesism."
