Green and ethical lifestyle

Published:  15 December, 2009

LONDON: UK AWARE is the UK's only public facing green lifestyle show, running for three years with great success. Showcasing the best of the green industry over two days, Friday 16 and Saturday 17 April 2010, it brings consumers and trade the best ideas for greener living.

Danny Carnegie, Founder of UK AWARE said: "UK AWARE is now firmly established as the UK's 'must attend' green event. Copenhagen is now less than a week away and with sexy green supercars, beauty makeovers, fashion shows, a kids area, business advice and thousands of green products and services on show, UK AWARE 2010 will offer the complete solution for contemporary sustainable living.’

UK AWARE 2010 is expected to attract 500 exhibitors and over 20 000 visitors. The show will have the largest and most diverse collection of low carbon vehicles, exhibiting the latest ‘Green Machines.’ For the budding entrepreneurs, The Green Business Start Up Surgery will help to understand how to apply green products and services. Fashionistas are not left out by any means, the ultimate Clothes Swapping Party, a chance to overhaul winter wardrobes without spending a dime nor having an environmental impact and the Morsbags exhibition has some great haberdashery ideas, which was voted as the best feature by visitors last year.

Over 50 world class speakers renowned for their expertise on how we can help the environment and think greener will also be at the exhibition raising hot topics of discussion.

UK AWARE has chosen Olympia because it was imperative to use a venue which aligned itself ethically. In an industry which traditionally has a large carbon footprint, London Olympia is setting an industry standard having won an AEO award in recognition of their sustainability initiatives.
