NZ's Largest Sustainable Lifestyle Show Returns

New Zealand’s Largest Sustainable Lifestyle Show Returns – Bigger Than Ever!

Find all your sustainability needs under one roof for one weekend only as Go Green Expo returns to Auckland’s ASB Showgrounds on the 7th & 8th of April. Back for the 5th year in a row the show is home to over 200 of New Zealand’s best and brightest in the industry. The idea is to show Urban Kiwi’s just how easy it is to live a little greener, a little more sustainably, amongst the rush of our busy day to day lives.

Start the day upstairs with a Free Yoga Class run by the wonderful JayaYoga studio. Free seminars continue all day long in our two seminar rooms with a star-studded line up teaching you everything you need to know from Gut-health to Wine in a Can!

There’s something for everyone, from the Kids Colouring area sponsored by My Mojo, Healthy Pet Food’s for our furry friends, home décor with Blacksand Furniture and in the garden with Vegepod. And some of the big names in sustainability Mercury Energy and Green Sheep Insulation will be joining the party.

Once you’ve worked up your appetite take a wander through our Better Food Fair Street Food Festival bursting with the most delicious and creative menus from Auckland’s delicious green Foodies. This year’s Better Food Fair is a feast of the cultural to the classic showcasing Ethiopian, Korean, Dutch, Mexican, German, Italian, French and more, all with the wonderful twist of being organic, natural, vegan, raw gluten free and generally delicious.

On Saturday afternoon take a load off to the cool tunes of Chris Sander’s live music from 4.30pm and make sure to sample the fantastic range of organic Wines, Beers and Non-Alcoholic delights at our onsite bar. Or take a stroll down Beverage Alley to wash down the excitement of the day.

WHERE: ASB Showgrounds, Greenlane, Auckland.
WHEN: Saturday 7th April 10am – 7pm, Sunday 8th April 10am – 5pm.

Further details and tickets for the expo can be found online at www.gogreenexpo.co.nz.
