Better Living Show
A reinvention of the consumer show in a city whose favorite color is clearly green. The Energy Trust Better Living Show is a three-day festival that provides an entertaining setting to explore sustainable and fair trade choices for your home, garden and life. The event will feature companies and organizations with products and services in eight core areas: lifestyle, food and beverage, transportation, conservation, home and garden, eco adventure, clean tech, and recycling. The Better Living Show is here to celebrate what people and businesses are doing right and encourage everyone to improve life today for a positive impact on tomorrow. The Show is a production of Blue Ocean Events, co-owned by Michael O’Loughlin and Stephanie Frisch. “We feel so strongly that the tools and resources for people to live their best life should be easily accessible that we have made this show free to the public” shares Frisch.
