Check out these surprising activities at this year's Veg Expo

Dec 20 2017, 5:30 am

Veg Expo lives up to its reputation of being one of Canada’s top expos that delivers top-notch products to vegan, vegetarian, and organic lifestyles.

Spending a day at Veg Expo gives you access to interesting food, home, garden, and beauty products that can help make your life healthier and happier.

For starters, bring your kids by LifeSpace Gardens, a business that offers planter boxes. These self-watering vegetable gardens offer an unparalleled opportunity for your little ones to get their hands dirty and learn about growing their own vegetables.

Another great opportunity for creative children includes Blank Boy Canvas, an artistic collective that facilitates collaborative projects, exhibits, and youth workshops. Kids will work on their own creative “blank boy” pieces.

Discovery Toys is hosting a play area to keep young kids busy with fun and educational toys. They’ll have a great time socializing with other children their age and enjoy delicious fruit and veggie pouches from Love Child Organics along the way.

This event is more than just healthy foods. Catering to environmentally friendly products, the Sustainable Home Zone is taking its exhibit to the next level from previous years. Get behind the wheel of Electra Meccanica’s innovative electric car called Solo, or take a seat on a stylish and economical electric scooter from Motorino.

BMW i8 and i3 will also show onlookers the next level of sustainable transportation. And yes, test drives will be available. Learn how to grow your own agriculture with Farms Wall and collect rain water with The World in a Garden – the Home Zone is ready to show you how to reduce your foot print in style.

Launching for the first time is the Beauty Bar presented by The Vegan Project showcasing cruelty-free, ethical, and vegan brands from local businesses. So don’t forget to check them out, and perhaps pamper yourself on a bright sunny Sunday at Veg Expo.
