Green Living Festivals

Looks like a fun day for the family & the planet at the same time!

After reading an interesting post on Tammy Logan’s blog Gippsland Unwrapped about the Casey Green Living Festival (which evolved from a Cloth Nappy Expo) I thought it might be a good idea to provide a resource of links to other Green Living Festivals or similar events around Australia (not limited to Victoria or the Gippsland region).  They often have a great list of FREE activities for the family.  So take your kids for a look if you’re in the area, looks like a fun day.

If you’re planning a festival or even a craft market in your area and would like to be listed here please Contact Me and I’ll be more than happy to add you to this list as it grows.

For more information about Gippsland Unwrapped and the great work that Tammy does you can read her story here https://gippslandunwrapped.com/our-story/

You might just find yourself reading through all the great tips she has on sustainable living and minimalist lifestyle and how you can apply these things to your own life in small ways.  Every little bit counts but often we are overwhelmed and don’t know where to begin so I think blogs like this are fantastic for those that would like to get more involved in sustainable living but need simple clear instructions or ideas without having to spend hours doing your own research reinventing the wheel.

Tammy’s original article about the Casey Green Living Festival can be viewed through this link below, looks like a big day planned and I hope it all goes well.
