Everybody’s talking Green. But how many of you can hear what they’re saying? Only the sustainability of your mind…Seriously! This is the future we’re talking about here and not just yours or mine. Whether you believe or not everybody must admit that Reduce, Reuse and Recycle are an important part of modern urban life.
At the East Side Ride’s Green Living area you’ll be exposed to some of the best innovative practices surrounding the 3R’s from knowledgeable people passionate about making a difference to the environment. Plus we’ll explore how to get the best out of your body which we think is just as important as the planet. Of course we know that all this talk about Green Living will make you hungry so we’ve also invited along local growers and organic food suppliers to further highlight healthy living.
