Get along to the Eco Technology Show

eco technology show logo

This is the UK’s premier event for trade, building owners, occupiers, and the general public covering sustainable build, energy, transport and technology.  It takes place at the Brighton Centre on Friday 14th and Saturday 15th June.  We are to be there with our recycled stand on Saturday 15th. 

You’ll find us on the 1st floor in Seminar area 3, floor plan here.  Pedro and his recycled robots will there playing green games and sharing ideas about how people can lead a greener life, save money and help the environment.

Our stand will illustrate how “there is no such thing as rubbish just a waste resource in the wrong place”. As well as green games using up-cycled materials we will be selling beautiful merchandise which the Philippine Community Fund (PCF) make out of our waste.  This money benefits poor families in Manila, helping keep their children off the landfills and instead in the PCF school!

The Sussex Green Living recycled robots will be the main focus for the ‘Waste Resource Sussex Green Living recycled robotsRecycling Trail competition’.  This will be a trail around the exhibition, all you and your family need to do is look out for Pedro the Sussex Green Living frog who will be clinging to waste resources, (otherwise known as recyclable packaging), on the stands around the show.  As you spot the items write down the stand number and read the environmental fact about the waste resource. When you have found all 10 waste resources, simply answer the final question and drop off your competition entry to the Sussex Green Living recycled stand. There will be a great green prize for the winner!

Courtesy of  Take One Productions (UK) Ltd we will be playing the following videos throughout the day:

 

We are supplying a ‘Waste Resource Recycling Zone’ so bring along your recycling (things the council cannot recycle), see below.

“Greening Sussex by Sussex families”

About Carrie Cort

My name is Carrie Cort, I set up Sussex Green Living out of concern for the way we humans are treating the planet which sustains us. With motherhood in 2008 came concern about environmental sustainability and a burning desire to learn how we can live more environmentally friendly lifestyles, in harmony with nature. I have always had a passion for the countryside, animals and the natural environment. Most of my career has been spent in marketing and communications, mainly within education and the landbased industries, latterly using the power of video communications. In an effort to help create a climate for change I decided to use my knowledge and digital skills to share ideas which anyone can adopt, saving money and the planet. I’m not an expert, just an ordinary person who is on a greening journey and wanting to pass on what I’ve learnt to others. Let’s all make some simple changes, become more resilient and try to lead simpler, less materialistic and consumerist way of life.
