Presented By:

Ergon Energy Office of Sustainability

Every household and every business must take action to reduce both their water and energy consumption, and be pro-active in minimising climate change.

The Smart Home and Lifestyle Sustainability Expo (380kB .pdf) recognises the vital need to show the whole community how to protect our planet and our way of life.

This Expo will be Townsville’s largest showcase of products and services for use in homes, offices, businesses, schools and gardens, which save water, save energy, reduce waste, increase recycling or provide cleaner energy.

Going green is no longer optional: it’s something we all need to embrace. Using green products and services is a must for every business and household.

Supported By:
