Virginia Beach to go green

September 15, 2012 by  

The Hampton Roads Sustainable Living Expo will take place at the Virginia Beach Convention Center at the end of September. This is a two-part event, with day one will being a business lunch and day two offering excitement for the general public. Admission for day one is $25 while admission for day two is free.

The business lunch on September 28 will take place from 11:30 am – 1:30 pm. The keynote speakers will be Stewart Schwartz and Chris Stone. The topic under discussion will be “How sustainability affects your bottom line” and the lunch will end with a question-and-answer session. This will be an excellent networking opportunity for Virginia Beach business professionals, especially those interested in sustainability. Those who will be attending will no doubt be arranging for a business card printing order in advance so they have enough cards to hand out to everyone they meet.

The public expo will begin at 10:00 am on September 29. While admission is free, the public is asked to bring such items as cell phones to be recycled or to bring a non-perishable food item for the local food bank. The day will include hands-on activities, demonstrations, a vendor exhibit hall, and the 2012 Stewardship Awards presentation. The Stewardship Awards are given to those who have made environmentally-friendly improvements to their home, workplace, or a community facility.

For those interested in learning how to live a more sustainable life, this event will provide them with all the information that they need to succeed.
