Down:2:Earth (D2E).

Down:2:Earth - An exploration into sustainable living.

Similar to the Eco Trade Show I mentioned previously that has taken place in California, Down:2:Earth a.k.a. D2E will take place in Boston this March at the Hynes Convention Center!

D2E is a weekend dedicated to sustainable living. It will feature video presentations, booths for companies to promote their products, a fashion show, an art show, author readings, a bicycle rack design competition, and interactive seminars. It is a chance for people to see how many green options there are available. D2E will both teach why sustainable living is so important and show how to create a sustainable lifestyle.

The seminars are planned to include:
-Calculating your carbon footprint
-25 ways to help green your home
-Eating well for your children and grandchildren
-Greening your business
-Slow food -- where to buy what

Aiming to appeal to a wide range of age groups, D2E will promote businesses offering green alternatives to everything from fashion to finance.

It's going to be a great event and I'm excited to be a part of it!
I got my information from Nina Berger who is in charge of communications and publicity for the event.

Eventually D2E will have a website and as the planning progresses I'll let you know!
