Sustainability and the City

The annual Sustainable Living Festival has been injecting old Melbourne town with daily doses of green goodness since Saturday. An absolute bumper program of events (they don’t call this Australia’s largest sustainability festival for nothing!) has been taking place across the city, but what would a festival be without a market to top it all off? Next weekend is the Festival’s Big Weekend which means that The Green Market will once again transform Federation Square into an eco haven.

From Friday Feb 17th to Sunday Feb 19th, more than 80 eco-minded vendors will pop-up and pop-out their finest wares – from food, coffee and lifestyle products to building materials, home improvement goodies, green services and alternative transport, energy and waste disposal options. The markets will be complimented by a range of other must-see events, including a Climate Quiz with Adam Hills and Tanya Ha, a Green Inventors forum, Dr Karl tackling renewable energy and ‘off-the-grid’ gigs by Lisa Mitchell and Amanda Palmer. Check out the full, irresistible program here.
