Green Living Show 2018 Media Preview in Toronto, Ontario

This year’s Green Living Show is taking place at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre between April 6 – 8, 2018. This is the 12th year this show has taken place in Toronto and it is North America’s largest consumer healthy & green living show showcasing exhibits, workshops and solutions for leading a sustainable lifestyle.

Over 350 exhibitors will be present and offering products and services that cover eco-home, green car, local food & drink, fashion & beauty, nature, and health & wellness.

The media preview was hosted by one of the event’s sponsors, Propeller Coffee Co., on March 6, 2018.

As with last year, a sample selection of exhibitors showcased their innovative products and demonstrated how their products strive for sustainability to make the world a better place by leaving a smaller carbon footprint. We were also able to sample food and drinks from vendors participating in the Delicious Local Food & Drink Pavilion which represents different cuisines from around the world.

Here are 21 things in Innovations and Food & Drinks to look forward to in Green Living Show 2018.

The best way to describe Jocelyn’s product is a super charged probiotic for indoor/outdoor plants & vegetation.
