The beautiful and highly functional family home will be built “off the grid” in a one-of-a-kind security village in the picturesque Wellington valley and all visitors to The Green Expo will be in the running to win this life changing prize.
More than just a property development, the eco-village in Wellington is being designed and constructed according to the most innovative sustainability principles, using environmentally friendly materials, products and even service providers. This is to be the pilot project of a series of similar security villages planned for various locations in South Africa.
The Green Expo in association with National Geographic Channel takes place from the 28th to the 30th of September at the Sandton Convention Centre and invites members of the public to discover practical solutions that will allow them to harness their green consciousness in a fun and sustainable way.
Presented by the multi award-winning organisers of the SABC Education Baba Indaba, this comprehensive trade and consumer exhibition promises to be an informative and interactive event not to be missed.
With the Expo byline Sustainability is your Responsibility underpinning the event, complex issues such as climate change, biodiversity, biotechnology and social investment will be addressed by leaders in the field, while exhibitors will showcase cutting-edge products, services and sustainable eco-design, including the latest hybrid vehicles.
Nampak Bevcan, in partnership with Collect-a-Can, will once again bring topical issues to the fore with a comprehensive Main State Programme, which includes expert speakers, interactive discussions and even cutting-edge recycled fashion.
Chris Naudé, CEO of The Green Expo comments: “The primary objective of The Green Expo is to promote environmental sustainability as a way of life; to make sustainability cool, sexy and fashionable, not just responsible! This cause, and as such the expo, is close to our green hearts and we see it as a unique opportunity for eco-warriors to showcase what’s out there for people who want to do more to appease the tree-hugger within. We are also extremely excited to have the opportunity to give away an exquisite eco home, built according to the principles we strive to promote! The winner of the home will be drawn from all visitors to The Green Expos to be held in Sandton and Cape Town, and the winners will be announced in Cape Town on Sunday 25 November 2012.”
In keeping with their mantra, The Green Expo will also be instituting green measures of its own, ensuring all green credentials are fulfilled! The organisers will ensure waste reduction through the recycling of all paper and plastics, as well as biodegradable waste through compost production. Energy consumption will be kept to a minimum through the various energy-saving measures being implemented and all the mouth-watering meals served at the event will also be prepared from organic produce only.
Don’t miss this first-of-its-kind event in Sandton, open from 10:00 – 18:00 on each of the three show days. Tickets are R50 each, but visitors who cycle to the event get in free!
