The Durban Exhibition Centre will be transformed into a platform of innovative ideas, greening techniques, and money saving solutions during the Sustainable Living Exhibition which will be held from 6 - 8 September.

The eThekwini Municipality’s Imagine Durban Department takes pride in hosting the Sustainable Living Exhibition year after year to provide the opportunity to learn how to go green. The focus of this year’s exhibition is on water conservation. Being an intelligent species, it is only fair that humans are responsible for the environment in which we live.

With more than 200 exhibitors registered and the appeal of a free entrance, the three day event promises to perk interests. The exhibition will ooze creativity and wonder as it challenges normal people into thinking differently about the way we live and what can be done to live sustainably.

Come and see a fashion show made out of recyclable materials, watch captivating environmental movie screenings or get great gardening tips and ideas. Learn how to harvest rain and save water or learn how to use renewable energy and have a more energy efficient household. The young ones will also have a ball of a time as there will also be tons of learning activities and demonstrations for children of all ages such as scientastic shows and workshops and a Planetarium aimed to inspire our young minds of today.

There will be a wellness clinic and opportunities for free counselling available and attendees can also opt to save a life by making a blood deposit at the Blood Bank.

On sale will be fresh organic vegetables, energy saving devices, jewellery, art work, upscaled clothes and bags, indigenous plants and more.

People are encouraged to bring donations of clothes, books and toys that will go towards a worthy charity.

Schools are welcome to bring their students to tour the Exhibition and take advantage of the learning opportunities available. For School enquiries, contact Hyacinthia Naidoo Tel.031 3114272 cell 083 6605422
