Pull up your socks, slap on some sunscreen and come out to play at the Randwick Eco-Living Fair on Sunday, September 15.

For the ninth year running, Randwick Community Centre (27 Munda Street, Randwick) will host the annual Eco-Living Fair, which attracts up to 6000 residents and visitors each year. Whether you’re looking for a fun family day out or want to learn about composting, becoming greener, or saving money on bills – the fair has it all!

Bursting with colour, the Gypsy Caravan Stage will be a funhouse for children with recycled art and craft activities running all day. Or if you feel like a stretch, you can join one of the free yoga or zumba classes in the morning.

Under The Big Top, you can dance along to live music or laugh your arse off at the award-winning Edinburgh Festival show ‘Lady Sings It Better’, which will take the stage at 12.45pm.

Those in attendance can also get their hands dirty with a number of Eco Workshops, where you’ll learn all there is to know about sustainability. Or why not join the Eco-House tours with Lish Feyer, who will share all the best tricks for saving energy and water at home. Community groups like Permaculture East, Rhubarb Foods and Transition Sydney will also be offering up ideas about reducing your ecological footprint.

Market stalls selling eco-friendly products will entice you with recycled fashion and homewares, and when you start feeling peckish, food vans serving fair-trade, organic treats will leave you satisfied.

So whether you feel like lying in the grass and enjoying some free entertainment, or exploring all the fun activities on offer, the Eco-Living Fair has something for everyone. Start the spring season with a bang at this fun outdoor festival and learn eco tricks that will benefit our planet!
