Fashion Takes Action: How To Run A Green Event

It is a fashion show with some of Canada's top designers using sustainable fabrics from Skya made from soy, bamboo, hemp, organic cotton and wild silk, all in support of Environmental Defence. But it is also a demonstration of how to run a green event. The venue is the Evergreen Brick Works, perhaps Toronto's greenest spot. The fabrics are all maked form renewable resources. The invitations were electronic. The lighting is LED and high efficiency halide. The power is Bullfrog. Hybrid shuttle buses will run from the subway. The food is local, vegetarian and organic; so is the beer and wine. All the supplies are biodegradable. They say "We hope to inspire all event planners and show producers to make greener choices and thus less of an impact on the environment." Get tickets at ::Fashion Takes Action
