The ‘G’ in Gerringong just got a little bit bigger, with the town hosting its first ever Sustainability Expo on World Environment Day (Saturday June 5).

The Expo will showcase some of the region’s best green products and services and will see local personalities talking at seminars about the steps they’ve taken to make their lifestyle more sustainable.

This includes Kiama dentist Greg Brodie, who’s inadvertently turned green by deciding to transform his pushbike into a solar powered bike and riding to work each day.

For a region that has poor public transport options, meaning cars the primary form of transportation, the seminars will be a good reminder of the many actions residents can take to reduce their environmental impacts in other ways.

Exhibits will include local wind generators, eco friendly heating, eco-friendly household and personal care products, green computing, passive solar construction and a new organic food co-op that’s set to open its doors shortly.

A recycled art exhibition will be on display, with works from the region’s primary school on display. The winners of the competition will be announced at 11am.

There will be numerous children’s activities throughout the day, including ‘Kidz for the Planet’.

Venue: Gerringong Town Hall, Fern Street, Gerringong
