The Green Living Show in Toronto this past weekend was a great place to meet plenty of interesting people. Mike and I ran into some past and present (and maybe even future?) advertisers.
Monica Fuda and Krystle Coates were staffing a booth to promote Trees Ontario, which has subsidies available to people who want to reforest their properties.
Bob Barnett had a popular exhibit for Escarpment Biosphere Conservancy that got people talking about land conservation efforts near the Niagara Escarpment.
Lianne and James Krane know how to keep mosquitoes away, with Insect Defend Patch. The vitamin-B-powered trans-dermal patch sticks to bare skin and protects for 24 hours or so. Doesn’t work against blackflies, unfortunately, which are due to bug us in a few weeks.
Credit Valley Conservation Authority’s informative booth was staffed by Jakub Wrobel and others.
Paul Fulentic stood behind his Magic Ring leaf bag opener. The reusable plastic ring holds the bag open making it easier to clean up your town yard. I expect that rural residents are building great compost piles!
Gordie Wornoff of A Higher Plane is a genius at reusing and upcycling junk. His bench from a metal barrel which is being enjoyed here by Eric Rumble, editor of Alternatives Journal, and the table top made of old books, were only two of his creations that are particularly striking.
Lots of useful, interesting and fun ideas here! What do you think?
