EPIC Vancouver Sustainable Living Expo This Weekend – May 11 – 13, 2012

One of the most popular annual expos at the Vancouver Convention Centre is the EPIC Vancouver: Sustainable Living Expo, happening this weekend, May 11 – 13.

A smorgasbord of awesomeness for the eco-conscious (that’s practically everyone in Vancouver, right? At least, that’s what we’re aspiring to be….), EPIC Vancouver brings together over 300 exhibitors and features the latest trends in sustainable Fashion, Food, Health, Beauty, Home Garden, Recreation, and Transportation. There are Main Stages with live presentations and demos, a live art walk, and a lot of focus on local, organic and fair trade food, including an “EPICurean Corner” that showcases B.C.’s artisan food makers and a “Whole Foods EPICurean Stage.”

  • Shopping at the 300+ earth-friendly retailers
