On Friday afternoon, I headed over to the Vancouver Convention Centre to check out EPIC, the sustainable living expo, for the Pacific Parklands Foundation.
With over 300 exhibitors offering various contests, prizes, promotional products, special pricing and delicious food samples – it proved to be a fabulous afternoon that quickly turned to evening as I stayed until closing.
The EPIC Expo was a fabulous way to meet and speak to some of the Pacific Parklands Foundation’s wonderful donors and supporters including Greenster Vancouver, Obasan Premium Organic Mattresses (remember those dreamy pillows at Parksfest 2011?), TD Friends of the Environment Foundation (avid supporter of not only PPF but also the Catching the Spirit Youth Environmental Stewardship Program and the Lower Mainland Green Team) and, of course, Metro Vancouver!
It also gave me the opportunity to speak to and connect with representatives of the BC Scrap-It Program, a fellow Shell FuellingChange competitor.
Lastly, it was an excellent means of getting acquainted with organizations and companies I had not heard as much about. For instance, the Haiku Media Group who I will be speaking to further in the days ahead!
After a positive, informative, successful and fun experience at the EPIC Expo, I sincerely hope everyone took time out of the sunny weekend to check it out. If not – make sure you get there next year!
