Today is the last day of the Vancouver Green Living Show.
The Green Living Show is Vancouver's premier consumer show dedicated to all things green. Information...Innovation....Inspiration...everything you need to green up your life is right here, under one roof!
It was a last minute decision for us to have a booth in the show. Kudos to our staff for pulling together on such short notice. Our booth theme focused on 100% recycled copy paper. We had over 40 paper boxes at the show and every single one came back empty. We sold a single ream for $5.00, and 3 reams for $10.00. Our booth was very popular, as people commented having a tough time locating quality 100% recycled paper. Our paper is also Green-E Certified, which means the actual mill the paper is made runs on clean energy. Something that did not go unnoticed on the crowds.
In our booth we also showcased some of our over 2500 recycled office supplies, cleaning products and janitorial paper supplies. I had several new potential customers comment that they were specifically at the show looking for a single source supplier who had recycled products. All in all the show was a bit long, spread out over three full days so the crowds were fairly soft in the evenings but the quality of attendees was exceptional, well educated and environmentally conscious.
Sometimes it's quality not quantity, and that was the case for Vancouver's first Green Living Show.
