Expo’s Green solutions on show at Noosa Biosphere Day
  • Friday 03 September 2010

A great green family fun day is on Sunday 19 September 2010 when the Living Smart Expo joins Noosa Biosphere Day at Noosa Woods from 10am to 4pm.

Sunshine Coast residents and businesses wanting to learn how to live sustainably and give their home or business an eco-make over can see the latest energy efficient appliances and products while taking part in the Noosa Biosphere Day celebrations.

Council’s Project Manager of Environment Initiatives Ben McMullen said that a visit to the Living Smart Expo, on Noosa Biosphere Day, is a good way to find out how to live a sustainable lifestyle.

"The Noosa Biosphere Day will showcase organisations and business involved in supporting environmentally sustainable behaviour in our community, which makes the Living Smart Expo a great fit with the theme of day’s events," Mr McMullen said.

"The Living Smart Expo is a one-stop-shop for builders, renovators, businesses and households looking for sustainable products and services available right here on the Coast.

"Whether you are building, renovating or just wanting to reduce your energy and water costs the Expo has information on solar energy, rainwater tanks, low energy lighting, fair trade, eco-architecture and travelling smart.

"Learn about permaculture, composting and worm farming, sustainable design and energy efficiency and take part in Biosphere Day activities with live performers, music, entertainment, community groups and forums and speakers.

"The day is an opportunity to learn fresh ideas and exciting products and services available here on your doorstep."
