EPIC Expo This Weekend

“Stoked for EPIC: The Vancouver Sun Sustainable Living Expo this weekend! (:” – This is what my current Facebook status reads.

Yes, this Friday, Saturday and Sunday; from May 13-15 2011 at the new Vancouver Convention Centre West building (1055 Canada Place) is the 2011 EPIC: The Vancouver Sun Sustainable Living Expo.

What is the EPIC Expo?

The EPIC Expo is “Western Canada’s largest lifestyle show for the eco-conscious consumer“. In other words, it’s a huge exhibition filled with shopping, food and drinks, advice, fashion and much more, all with a sustainable living.

What is sustainability?

Well in layman’s terms, sustainability meets the needs of the present without compromising the function to be productive over time. In other words, it is self-supporting of its needs such that it doesn’t hinder the way of life of future generations. Kinda like good defense men for hockey, it meets the needs of the present (stopping a goal, PK) yet it also does not hinder the future (not being useless in PPs by having goals and assists).

Why not drop by for a great experience with the industry’s top sustainable experts. Tickets can be purchased online or at the door, and they’re just $9 for students (before HST, online).
