The Green Living Show

Next week-end is the Green Living Show at the Direct Energy Center. It is Toronto’s first consumer show dedicated to all things green and it is my understanding that eBike’s will be featured and on display by Crusherebike’s under the transportation section of the show. There are also some great speakers on green living, eating, building, business, etc.

I was thinking of heading down there on both saturday evening to see Tim Flannery and possibly on sunday to see TAS’ design presentation. And, of course, I would take Pepe, the eBike. So if anyone is interested in meeting up, let me know.
