The Low Down On Green Living
January 24th, 2009
Yesterday I got to check out the Go Green Expo at the LA Convention Center– and wanted to let you know that it’s running all weekend and open to the public. If you’re near the area, check it out!
The Go Green Expo has many exhibitors and speakers, so there’s something for everyone. If you’re into large-scale renewable energy, there are solar and wind options for you to see. If you’re into organic soaps and vintage fashions, you’re covered too. It’s quite a fascinating mix!
One company I really enjoyed visiting is SolaRover. SolaRover provides big solar panel set-ups on mobile carts. They can provide electricity for all types of commercial, industrial and emergency applications. Need some solar at your concert? Your school? Your natural disaster? Check.
Another company I loved seeing was Green Roots. They build green roofs and walls. (If you don’t know why green roofs are so great, click here.) The demo models they had at the show were of gorgeous succulents– I could just see them glowing green on a roof. They also provide green plant “walls” or “screens” for events. They are pretty cool.
I’m sorry to have to go negative, but I saw one company that made me sad. There is a guy with a booth who is promoting green models– yes, female models– supposedly for green events and promotions. His materials show a lot of leggy blonde ladies wearing short green dresses. Really? Is that what the green movement is all about? Perhaps he should go to the Detroit Auto Show.
