This year’s EPIC Sustainable Living Expo in Vancouver drew over 300 exhibitors from eco-friendly toy companies, to recycled clothing and of course, bamboo towels and linens! Shoo-Foo was there – as usual – showing off our luxuriously soft and organic products, perfect for any home.
The ticket-buyers were just as diverse as the exhibitors. Along came viewers who were shopping, viewers who were looking and viewers who were ‘down to business.’ Almost every Shoo-Foo product was on display, from beddings to towels and robes, and let’s not forget our unforgettably cute baby layette! Ah yes, and of course our brand new spa head wrap and head band (thank you bald mannequins for modeling those for us!)
Everyone who came by the booth also had a chance to win bamboo products every month by following us Twitter, liking us on Facebook, subscribing to our e-newsletter and/or starting a gift registry! The offer is, of course, still extended to anyone who wishes to follow along and be a little social with us!
Was it fun? Oh yeah! While all tradeshows make for great samplers of products galore, the businesses showcased at EPIC were especially magnetic! How calming, and yet exciting, to know that the eco-friendly choice is becoming so easily accessible to the modern consumer who wishes to ‘go green’ as they say. Not only that, we were so proud to see that many of our fellow exhibitors were also Canadian, like us! Go Canada!
EPIC is put on by Vancouver-based GLOBE Foundation, which is a non-profit organization supporting sustainability practices among businesses. They put on events that draw thousands each year to focus on producing planet-friendly initiatives among businesses and government bodies.
