The Go Green Expo is this weekend at the Los Angeles Convention Center. The event is open to the public on Saturday from 10-6 and Sunday from 10-5.
If you are just starting your journey to going green or even if you are well on your way, green expos and festivals like this are a great way to discover tons of green products, services, and information all in one place.
There will be over 300 booths and exhibits, interactive seminars and speeches (you can download speaker schedule). In addition to the Green Marketplace, there will be a screening of the film “Tapped” with a Q&A with the Director and Producer, Film Presentations by Blue Planet Film Festival, a rock climbing wall, yoga classes, and lots of demonstrations and hands-on activities. Tons of giveaways too – if you don’t already have a bunch of reusable shopping bags, this is the place to load up on them (for free).

The rain should clear over the weekend and it’s a quick drive up to the Los Angeles Convention Center. Admission is just $10 for adults (which includes admission for both days) and free for kids under 12.
If you happen to go, stop by and say hi. We’ll be in booth 113.
If you can’t make this expo, here are just some of the many other upcoming Green expos in California:
Green Meets Green Expo – Del Mar, January 22-24
Natural Products Expo West – Anaheim, March 12-14. This is the premier event for healthy products. While it's primarily food (tons of samples – go hungry), there are also personal care and home goods. It's ranked one of the top 100 shows in the U.S. With thousands of vendors, bring walking shoes and some water. It's an all-day event with thousands of new products to discover.
The Green Festival – the mother of all green festivals and my favorite event of the year, organizers have just added a Spring show in San Francisco on April 10-11. The traditional fall festival will still be held Nov. 5-7. If you have never been to this show, it’s awesome – worth a trip to Northern California for sure.
