Green Living Show This Weekend

Since we can't rely on our government to act on climate change, it's time we investigate what we can do as individuals. This weekend's Green Living Show is Toronto's first consumer show dedicated to eco-friendly ideas and products. At the Direct Energy Centre (Exhibition Place), the show runs from Friday morning and to Sunday evening.

Not only will there be more than 200 exhibitors with "greenovations," but there is a seriously star packed lineup of speakers with names like Daryl Hannah, Robert F. Kennedy, David Suzuki and the ex-next president of the United States, Al Gore.

On Saturday, the show gets political with federal party leaders. Elizabeth May, Jack Layton and StĂŠphane Dion are confirmed to discuss their idea of a sustainable Canada, but sadly prime minister Stephen Harper has yet to confirm his appearance.

Local celebrities include Margaret Atwood, chef Jamie Kennedy and Gill Deacon are also scheduled to speak on the main stage.

Other events include daily eco-friendly fashion shows, cooking presentations and contests. Online tickets are $9 for adults, $7 for students and seniors. At the door, they are $10 and $8 respectively.
