There will be a large area dedicated to sustainability at Melbourne’s Building and Home Improvement Expo, for the serious builder and renovator, which probably reflects how much more seriously we are all taking our ‘ecological footprint’.
Wanting to lead by example, organiser Australian Exhibitions & Conferences (AEC) has worked closely with ‘Easy Being Green’ to calculate how to make the very first Building & Home Improvement Expo carbon neutral.
This 360sq metre display is all about education and information and will feature an array of sustainable products and technologies used in the construction of environmentally friendly homes.
The Expo runs for three days – June 1-3, at the Melbourne Exhibition Centre, 2 Clarendon Street, Southbank, Doors 3 & 5. There will be heaps of info and demonstrations:
Friday 1 June 10am – 9pm
Saturday 2 June 10am – 9pm
Sunday 3 June 10am – 5pm
Info Line: 1300 656 184
The Sustainable Living feature is sponsored by Sustainability Victoria.
