Aussie Eco Beauty Brands (Eco Expo)

by Samantha MacKenzie

Aussie Eco Beauty Brands (Eco Expo)

The Eco Expo is back in Brisbane. From this Friday the 13th through to Sunday to connect consumers with innovative products, encouraging the move towards a more sustainable nation. Following its success in 2018, the show will return with the theme ‘one eco step’, to encourage each of us to take at least one simple step toward a sustainable lifestyle without the need to take drastic measures.

Everyone from green warriors to those just beginning their eco journey will find something at the Eco Expo, with over 150 exhibitors and speakers spanning everything from home, beauty, family, food and lifestyle. Over the 3 days, visitors an check out the following: Lifeline $2 Clothing Sale with 20 tonnes (100 tables) of clothing to support slow fashion, the Eco Pledge, a Vegan Market and food trucks for all tastes, as well as special guest speakers with sustainability masterclasses, cooking demonstrations, DIYs and seminars. Visitors can even bring their bottles and cans to the event with recycling company TOMRA’s reverse vending machines offering a 10c refund from each container heading back to charity.

As someone who loves beauty, I try to incorporate Eco products into my daily routine. These days, it easier than ever to do so with so many wonderful brands creating beautiful products that work well, look good and don’t have a major impact on our environment. Below are some of the brands that will be exhibiting at the Expo. I encourage you to check them out at the event, or head to their websites and shop online.
