It is a TreeHugger mantra that good design is critical to sustainability, so it was exciting to visit EDIT: Expo for Design, Innovation & Technology -- "an immersive expo-meets-festival designed to celebrate the innovative work that is making the world a better place for all people."

The goals are the inspiration and provide the framework for EDIT’s five themes: Nourish, Shelter, Care, Educate, and the overarching message of Prosperity for All. In an immersive, interactive and playful environment, we present an edit of the most innovative people, projects and ideas that are transforming our future at this very moment.

It's all taking place in an old Unilever soap factory that's going to condos soon, but until October 8 is filled with inspiration for a bright green future.
