Go Green Expo was conceived after a viewing of the film "An Inconvenient Truth." It prompted the question, "How can we make a difference?"
A truly unique event from the ground up, Go Green Expo will change not only the public's perception of environmentalism but also how events like this are produced and managed. Inviting companies large and small to showcase what they are doing to reduce their respective carbon footprint, consumers will have hands on experiences with "eco-friendly" alternatives to current everyday products and services.
Even the event itself is environmentally friendly utilizing a ZERO Carbon footprint approach to event production. Biodegradable trash bags, eco-friendly printing, table coverings, recycled signs, compostable sponsor banners and more. Event waste will be separated and sorted to ensure the least amount of refuse going to the landfills. Staff travel and a portion of every ticket that is purchased will be carbon offset.
The Expo is being held at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Center City Philadelphia. There will be over 200 Booths / Exhibits, Interactive Seminars / Speeches, Film Presentations, Eco-Fashion Show, Green Marketplace, as well as demonstrations & hands on activities!
And, if you go on Saturday between 10am and 11:30am, The Philadelphia Phillies World Series Trophy will be on display for photos with you!
