People in Los Angeles may want to check out the Go Green Expo in the city this weekend.
Friday, January 23, will see a day packed with events, including a speech by actor and eco-warrior Ed Begley Jr.. Sherry Beall, host and producer of Healthy Planet, Healthy Me on KFPK-FM radio will broadcast live from the event, and there will also be a screening of Sundance Film Festival Winner “FUEL.” The film’s director Josh Tickell will then join Peter Fonda, Mariel Hemingway & Tony Tracy for a panel discussion.
There will also be a full day of events on Saturday, January 24, including a speech by Mariel Hemingway discussing overall wellness from her new book “Healthy Living from the Inside Out.” Sunday will see panel discussions about greening your business and sustainable energy. All three days will feature a trade show of everything green.
According to the website, the event
will change "not only the public’s perception of environmentalism but also how events like this are produced and managed. Inviting companies large and small to showcase what they are doing to reduce their respective carbon footprint, consumers will have hands on experiences with “eco-friendly” alternatives to current everyday products and services.
“Even the event itself is environmentally friendly utilizing a ZERO Carbon footprint approach to event production. Biodegradable trash bags, eco-friendly printing, table coverings, recycled signs, compostable sponsor banners and more. Event waste will be separated and sorted to ensure the least amount of refuse going to the landfills. Staff travel and a portion of every ticket that is purchased will be carbon offset.”
The Go Green Expo will take place at the Los Angeles Convention Center – South Hall J, 1201 South Figueroa Street, Los Angeles. Tickets are available here.
