LOHAS expo 2017, the must-go trade expo for all things lean, green, and organic since 2012 is back in town and proud to present leading businesses and brands in eco biz around the globe! This annual event is jam-packed with high-profile international and local speakers eager to discuss current sustainability concerns, as well as an eco product award ceremony and showcase presenting products and services on top of the game in terms of sustainability achievement and performance. And did we mention the VEG kitchen sessions held in association with Vegetarian Food Asia 2017 that will be delivering live culinary demonstrations from the region’s master chefs? Goodness, we’re hungry already!
But wait, you ask, what exactly is LOHAS? An acronym for Lifestyle Of Health And Sustainability, LOHAS represents consumers with a mission to promote a lifestyle in harmony with body, earth and society, and the market that caters to these folks. Drawing from the works of US sociologist Paul H. Ray, this growing cultural movement recognises the importance of individual and community action and encompasses a trend towards making value-based informed purchases that encourage markets to come out with conscious, socially responsible alternatives to present services and products. The February 25th event is set to introduce you with the tools to do just that, by featuring a variety of sustainable lifestyle and healthcare products in a 5,000 meter squared space packed with over 200 exhibitors and 5,000 products!
So come on down with friends, families and frenemies to discover the hottest new organic, eco products in the market! Into the minimalistic lifestyle and not so up for shopping? No worries, check out all the scrumptiously yummy vegan and vegetarian goodness available at Vegetarian Food Asia 2017, or learn about everything eco and travel from sustainable hotels to ethical adventure tours. Closet divas will be pleased to know there is a beauty and personal care pavilion filled with natural, cruelty-free goodies for both skin and body.
To those meticulous about performing product and company research - mommies and daddies we are looking at you! - what’s great about LOHAS is that you get to meet and speak with brands and entrepreneurs, find out where they source their products, and how it is produced and packaged, so you can purchase that eco baby jumpsuit or dish detergent with absolute peace of mind! Plus, it’s not everyday you can talk to international brands you love when they are based overseas.
And lastly, you who are slowly backing off and about to click away from this page, don’t go!
