green living show

By: Laurie Grassi
greenlivingIf you're heading down to the Green Living Show in Toronto this weekend, you're in for a treat. I went down yesterday and I was really impressed with not only the selection of eco-friendly products and information on offer, but also the crowds thronging the Direct Energy Centre, which is where the show is held. Obviously, there's a lot of interest in green living, and that's wonderful! I saw a number of things that I'll post about in more detail in the coming days and weeks, but here are a few tidbits. I dropped by the Essentia booth to try out the natural memory foam mattresses. I posted about them a while back (to read the post, click here), and when I tried them out, I was impressed. They felt very comfy and I'm thinking I might have to get one! My present mattress is doing the drastic dip-in-the-middle thing and I'm really starting to feel it. If I do go the Essentia route, you can be sure I'll be reporting back on it here... I also checked out the American Standard booth and loved the look of their H2Option siphonic, dual action toilet. At the Samsung booth, I watched the lastest in LED TVs, with very cool looking, ultrathin screens, that can be flush-mounted on your wall. Sure, they're expensive now, but the prices of all electronics come down eventually, and LEDs are superefficient when it comes to power usage. Burt's Bees was at the show once again and has expanded its line in Canada (which I'm thrilled about -- was very frustrating to see all the Burt's Bees products available on the U.S. website and not be able to find many of them here!). As well, there were tons of other great exhibitors too numerous to cover here, but I have collected info and will be filling you in, so do come back and check the blog out again! And one more thing re the show: Be sure to visit the Farm Fresh Fare area at the back and you'll find the best food at a show ever! Toronto area chefs have teamed with local farmers to serve up sustainable food that is absolutely delicious! Sampling tickets are $2 each. You really can't beat it!
