Designed to connect community with accessible, fun ways to live a greener life, event organizers reached out to local lifestyle brands known for their commitment to sustainability.

“At THINKNOW, we believe sustainability or 'being green' is not a single effort or one-time fashion statement. It’s a lifestyle, a community ethos and a plan for the world's future. The Eco-Chic Expo presents an excellent platform to participate in a premiere eco-community effort to inform and inspire a great local audience,” shares Becky Ellis, exhibitor and eco-friendly jewelry designer.
