The Earth Sustainable Living Expo is set for Peregian

The Earth Sustainable Living Expo is set to come to life in The Village, Peregian Beach.

The Earth Sustainable Living Expo is set to come to life in The Village, Peregian Beach from Thursday 4 July to Sunday 7 July, bringing a celebration of sustainable living practices and eco-conscious initiatives in the Noosa and Sunshine Coast region.

Hosted by Cartel Music and Events in collaboration with the Peregian Beach Business Association (PBBA), this four-day event is poised to be a highlight on the community calendar, showcasing the growing momentum of the sustainable living movement in the area.

The expo comes at a time when individuals and businesses alike are increasingly embracing sustainable practices, recognising the importance of reducing our ecological footprint and preserving the planet for future generations.

With exciting program elements for both children and adults alike, the event promises to be a fun-filled day out for the whole family.

Enjoy a tiny house tour from Aussie Tiny Houses, embark on a Bush Tucker Walk and Yarn on Country, participate in a beach clean up and enjoy blue drinks on the Peregian Surf Club deck with a jam-packed program of educational speakers.

For kids, there’s plenty of fun activities like nature crafts, seed planting workshops, interactive insect displays, flower crown workshops, and upcycling pool float workshops with PLOYS.

Lea Bye, director of Cartel Music and Events, emphasised the significance of the event, saying, “Sustainable living is no longer just a trend; it’s a fundamental lifestyle choice driven by a collective desire to minimise our impact on the environment. The EARTH Sustainable Living Expo is a platform for our community to come together, learn, and celebrate the strides we’ve made towards a more sustainable future.”

Highlighting the importance of the location, Kylie Plunkett, president of PBBA, expressed excitement about Peregian Beach’s role as the host venue.

“Situated between Noosa and the Sunshine Coast, Peregian Beach embodies a spirit of innovation and environmental consciousness. It’s the perfect setting for an event that celebrates our connection to the planet and inspires positive action,” Plunkett said.
