Win 2 Tickets to the Green Living Show!

Happy Wednesday, dear readers! GLS11_AVATAR_RGB This week, we'll be giving away five pairs of tickets to the Green Living Show next weekend in Toronto. First off, can I just say how jealous I am? Not only is this a great way to ring in spring (which, aren't we all beyond excited about?), but it promises to be an amazing chance to brush up on your green fashion and beauty knowledge. With more than 100 beauty, fashion and wellness exhibitors on hand, including the Emerging Designers Boutique from Fashion Takes Action, where you'll have the chance to browse higher-end clothing made locally or fairly and is free from toxins, this event promises to be nothing short of inspiring. Some designers on hand will include Nicole Bridger, an inventive Vancouver-based designer who works with materials such as certified organic cotton and bamboo and produces flattering pieces in beautiful colours (with earth-friendly dyes, of course) and Sarah Stevenson, who showed during last week's LG Fashion Week in Toronto, impressing many a fashion journalist.

It was incredible.

It's happening on Sunday, April 17th from 12-1 p.m. and looks to be incredibly informative. Gill Deacon will moderate the discussion. P.S. If you don't win, don't despair. One of the show's sponsors, Samsung Electronics Canada, will grant free admission to anyone who brings e-waste to the event. What's e-waste, you ask? Things like old cell phones, TV sets, computers, ect. Items that can be reused, resold or salvaged in some way. BEFORE you go, please make sure to look over this list to make sure your donation is accepted. Admission without e-waste is $12 (adult), Senior  $9 (65+) and Students $9 (13 – 17), Group Rate $8/person  (10+ people), School Rates $5/ person (10+ students /teacher). A portion of the paid admission will be going toward charity. To win: What's your best green living tip? Leave a comment below this post. I can't wait to hear your answers!
