Hey, ecochick. You busy the weekend of April 24-26, 2009? You gonna be anywhere near the Big Smoke? Then I bet you would love to take in the Green Living Show, being held at Direct Energy Centre, Exhibition Place, Toronto. From their website:

There are many reasons to attend the Green Living Show:

* Preview unique prototypes and fresh ideas at the Living Green-Ovations exhibit
* Be inspired by celebrities, eco-leaders and local personalities on the Green Living Main Stage presented by The Home Depot

* Take a spin in the latest hybrid vehicles at the Green Living Test-Drive
* Shop for healthy foods at the popular Food & Beverage Market
* Catch a flick at the Planet in Focus Film Screenings
* Get on your running shoes and run or walk 5K in the Earth Run
* Take a break and refresh in the Planet Forward Lounge
* Meet the totally cool, hip, fun, funky ecochick (OK, I added that one).

You convinced? You want two tickets? You're in luck. I have a bunch of tickets to give to YOU. Conditions for putting these tickets in your hot little hands:

- you can use the tickets (ie you live in TO or can make plans to be there)
- you comment on this post by Monday, April 20 at 12 noon EDT telling me what you're most looking forward to checking out at the Green Living Show (click the link for more details!)
- you leave me a way to contact you (if you use your Blogger profile make sure there's an email address in there somewhere, or just leave me your email addy in your comment) so that I can arrange getting the tickets to you if I randomly pick your name.

Good luck - hope to see you there!

I think a better question is what am I NOT interested in! :) It all sounds awesome. I think I'm most looking forward to learning about more local organic/earth friendly clothing places. Oh, and the food. And wine. And...

Hi! I am looking forward to Farm Fresh Fare. Not only will I get to try what Toronto chefs will create with local farmers and producers but proceeds will help create school gardens and help children better understand where food comes from and healthy diets!!!

I'm interested in seeing what kind of new innovations there are in "green living".

I attended last year and was reasonably impressed with the turn out. I'm anticipating more in the way of grassroots organizations advocating for environmental issues and related causes (hoping for more of an emphasis on education, and less on consumer goods).

Really looking forward to hearing Stephen Lewis - he's been an impression of mine for sometime now. Also curious to hear the author of "Ecoholic" speak to her experiences.

Overall, really keen to explore potential networking opportunities with environmental organizations and activists alike - and possibly learn about some new products/living alternatives to reduce my environmental footprint.

Lots to learn, I hope! Thanks, Rhiannon Myers

This year, I want to see MORE authentic green companies and products out there. Just because the label says 'all natural' it does not mean it is green. A more thorough definition of green should be given.

I agree with Candace...I would rather comment on what I DO NOT want to see this year. I found that last year's show was a lot of green washing. I know there was a panel of green judges to assess who can enter the show but I do not think it was that well done.
