Australia : Rising need for sustainable options helps grow annual Expo.

A desire for sustainable alternatives to a range of products and services is increasing with the community's awareness of the human impact on the environment, according to Dubbo City Council's Sustainability Coordinator Sam Swain.

Not only are local businesses more aware than ever of this market trend, but they are also incorporating sustainable practices into their business operations, he said.

Mr Swain coordinates the annual Dubbo Sustainable City Expo and said the variety of exhibitors grew each year.

"Last year Dubbo Sustainable City Expo featured 40 exhibitors and about 400 visitors. The next Expo is on Saturday, 28 September, from 9am to 2pm at Victoria Park and current exhibitors this year include Netwaste, Skylight World, and Dubbo Community Garden," he said.

"The requirements of exhibitors is that they offer products, services, demonstrations or displays that can assist householders and local business to live and work sustainably."

Mr Swain said the Expo was not only an opportunity to connect with individuals and households, but also with other businesses.

"There is much that businesses can learn about sustainable practices and initiatives through each other," he said.

"Overall, the 2013 Dubbo Sustainable City Expo will be a fantastic event for residents and businesses to discover a multitude of ways they can save money, energy and the environment."
