Ecoliving Fair: Captain Planet’s Big Day Out

By Georgie Jeffreys on September 14, 2011 in News

Living in the Eastern Suburbs is a pretty sweet deal – awesome beaches, great surf, stunning scenery, nifty digs and, most importantly, there’s always loads to do. We’re a pretty proactive bunch as well; as far as looking after ourselves and our bodies, this side of Sydney is definitely leading the nation’s charge.

But when it comes to the environment, and considering that our landscape is particularly spectacular, how well are we fairing?

Everyone I know boasts about their love of the environment and their commitment to being ‘green’. Yet, besides sorting the recycling from the trash, it seems a bit of a stretch to assume that each of us really is doing our fair share.

With that in mind, Randwick City Council’s Ecoliving Fair – to be held on Sunday, September 18 – seems like the perfect fit for all Eastern Suburbanites, especially those of us who actually have little idea what being ‘green’ realistically entails.

The Ecoliving Fair is the best place to go and learn how to live the sustainable life that many of us aspire to. What’s more, it’s free, and just when you were starting to think that it couldn’t get any cooler, the event is even offering valet parking – for bicycles! There’ll also be ecoliving workshops, fair trade and organic food market stalls, bike maintenance classes, live music, free yoga and Zumba lessons, and even a solar-powered ice cream cart – now that’s a pretty sweet deal!

So if you appreciate our beaches and killer views, and if you’re as patriotic about the Eastern Suburbs and the environment as you claim to be (or even if you’re not), do the world a favour and head down to the Ecoliving Fair. We can’t all be Captain Planet, but we can at least give it a shot.

The Ecoliving Fair runs from 10.30am to 3.30pm on Sunday, September 18 at the Randwick Community Centre, 27 Munda Street, Randwick. For more information visit
