Eco Design Fair: April 14, 2012 (Shanghai)

Eco Design Fair is a grass-roots community consumer event showcasing sustainable innovations and design in Shanghai. The events draw national attention to Shanghai’s unique intersection of art, commerce, and sustainability.

Started in 2008, the Eco Design Fair is the city’s first such initiative that provides the community with green tools to support restorative, environmentally positive design and lifestyles.

On Saturday, April 14, 2012, the Eco Design Fair will bring to Shanghai’s South Bund a full day of exhibits and activities for visitors to learn about green and healthy living, and seeking earth-friendly alternatives in fashion, food, energy, transportation, wellness, home, gardening, finance and more.

The theme of the Eco Design Fair this season is Explore, Create and Grow. The root of all inspiration comes from exploration that in turn enthuses creation and enables us to grow. The Eco Design Fair exists primarily to inspire and grow our eco consciousness for better living and a greener tomorrow.

The Eco Design Fair is a true community occasion, bringing together like-minded businesses, organizations and leaders from across China to promote sustainable economic and community development.
