greenexpo.jpgThis past October, a Green Drinks meeting in NYC was used as a platform to announce a brand new “eco-conference” for the Big Apple next April. Called the Go Green Expo, the inaugural event will take place April 25-27 at the Hilton New York Hotel. With partners such as the NY Post and Newscorp (and sponsors such as your’s truly, Treehugger, and the Nature Conservancy on board), we’re excited to see NYC be the center of attention for the latest in green.

Beyond the bevy of speakers, companies, and organizations on board to help fill up the conference venue, GGE will also have an eco film festival and fashion show. In addition to promoting the goods, this event will also walk the walk. From The Goode Life,gogreen.jpg

“100% recycled visqueen flooring, 100% compostable and biodegradable wastebasket liners, 100% compostable and biodegradable table top coverings, recycled material booth ID signs, biodegradable banner material, soy & water based inks, a natural gas powered forklift, and an extensive recycling and waste management program that takes environmental and social ramifications into account by utilizing local donation programs.”

    Seems they didn’t leave a thing out as far as the environmental footprint for this event. Hopefully there will be some new designers featured at the Eco-Fashion Show. I’m marking my calendar.

    I attended the event and though there were many great things to be seen it seemed odd to have a Hummer and a private Jet company there. Though running a Hummer on veggie oil may sound good, is that the right direction? Is that the right message? I’m thinking that rather than slapping on some band-aids we should focus on a new American Dream.
