Green crusaders fight for sustainability

Green crusaders fight for sustainability


The Green Living Show and NZ Organic Natural Expo announces a blockbuster lineup of speakers, including two super-guests who are leading the fight against unsustainable practices in retail – New Zealand’s Organic Crusader and the EcoWoman.

New World Remuera owner Adrian Barkla, crusader for more organic produce in supermarkets, together with ‘EcoWoman’, Belinda Robinson, owner of natural cleaning range ‘ecobasik’, will headline the event at Auckland’s ASB Showgrounds on 5th and 6th July.

Green Living Show CEO, Tina Raines says both speakers are huge drawcards for Kiwis who are passionate about sustainable living.

“Adrian and Belinda are two of New Zealand’s most prominent up-and-comers in the world of sustainability. They build their business models around products that are healthy and sustainable, and work hard to give those products price parity to ensure environmentally sustainable solutions are affordable for all New Zealanders.”

The show will be the first chance for eco-minded Kiwis to hear from these two leaders in sustainability, with this year’s event marking the first public seminar for both.

This year’s Green Living Show – the biggest in the event’s four year history – is also promising more exhibitors than ever before, as well as a bigger range of innovative eco-friendly products.

This will be the first showing for sustainable shoe brand Piccadilly, as well as a chance for event goers to get up close and personal with electric cars from five of the world’s leading car manufacturers.

“The Green Living Show encompasses all aspects of green living,” says Mrs. Raines.

“Whether it’s finding out how to realise energy efficiencies in your home or office, sourcing the latest organic products, or getting advice on sustainability in anything from beauty to home renovation, the Green Living Show has something for everyone.”

When: Saturday, 5th July and Sunday the 6th of July, 10am-5pm
Where: ASB Showgrounds, 217 Greenlane West, Greenlane, Auckland

Gordon Campbell: On The Budget

It may seem like Oliver to be so bold as to ask the Finance Minister for more gruel – but what the Dickens, Steven Joyce… is this Budget really as good as it gets?

Supposedly, the public was going to receive significant rewards – an election year lolly scramble no less – for the eight years of belt tightening that they’ve endured, and for the rundown of essential public services.

Well, what Budget 2017 delivered instead in Education and in Health were allocations barely sufficient to maintain the current levels of service delivery More>>
