On May 29, I travelled with a friend across the water (I live on Vancouver Island) to the Vancouver Sustainable Living Expo – Western Canada’s largest sustainable consumer tradeshow and eco marketplace.  It was held at the Vancouver Trade and Convention Center, downtown Vancouver.  We decided to skip the ferry, which would take us 2 hours to get there, and went on a float plane (20 min!) from Nanaimo.

I travelled with Lynda Diamond, owner of the Island Estuary B&B, and cook extraordinaire.

 Unfortunately it was a little rainy, but the view of the city was still amazing!  This is just before landing.

Here are a few of the booths we visited:

Mica Bella Cosmetics

 Edible –  uniqe ways to experience BC’s abundant culinary scene

 Shoo Foo – bamboo towells, bedding and baby layettes

inBed Organics – natural latex mattresses, bedding and more

Dream Designs – bed, bath, apparel, baby, yoga and decor

Green Over Grey – living walls and design

earth lab cosmetics – 100% natural cosmetics, made in Kelowna, B.C.

A happy shopper!
