L.A. Go Green Expo to feature Ed Begley Jr., Mariel Hemingway and Paul Watson

Los Angeles welcomes the latest in green living and eco-friendly services at the nation's premiere green business and sustainable lifestyle show set for April 15th -17th at the L.A. Convention Center.

Showcasing the latest and greatest in green products and services all under one roof, Go Green Expo dedicated to being a carbon neutral event, encourages participants to reduce their environmental impact through advocating sustainable practices. In an attempt at making the event as green as possible, the Expo will utilize paperless ticketing. Even exhibitors will be able to offer their catalogs and brochures in a paperless form by using new smart phone technology that allows visitors to scan bar codes at the exhibitors’ booths.

In addition to over 200 exhibitor booths showcasing the latest in green-lifestyle goods and services, visitors will be able to view hybrid and electric vehicles, sample eco-wine and foods at the tasting pavilion, learn the latest in green building and home improvement and watch dozens of films as part of the Eco-Film Festival.

Special guests include green guru and host of Living with Ed Ed Begley Jr., actress and author Mariel Hemingway, and Paul Watson, co-founder of Greenpeace and ocean warrior as seen on Animal Planet's Whale Wars.

Whether you’re a budding environmentalist or a seasoned activist, the Go Green Expo is sure to please – plan on carpooling and don’t forget to grab your reusable mug as you head out to this fun and interactive event.
