Green living done best in green buildings say experts at Greening Living Show, March 22-24

Alarmed that buildings are harming people and the environment, experts believe education is key and create Green Building Learning Zone


(Toronto, ON)  A group of 15 organizations from the green building sector have joined forces for the first time to share their knowledge at the upcoming Green Living Show March 22-24 in Toronto.

These green building experts have created a collaborative space within the Green Living Show called the “Green Building Learning Zone.”  With presentations, resources and more, the group wants the booth to reinvigorate the green building section of the Green Living Show and educate the public about what is possible in creating buildings that are good for people and the planet.
