It has been very rewarding to see EarthFest grow year over year and now be celebrating its 4th edition on January 20, 2019! From its inception, it has been designed to be a genuinely sustainable festival and always tries to push the boundaries of what’s possible.
This year we'll have new vendors, new guest speakers in the talks by Green Is The New Black Asia, new performers, a new children's area by orgayana and are even bringing in a tiny house for you to explore :) In total, it'll be over 130 stalls - our biggest yet! This year we’re encouraging the new EarthLife - Happiness through Responsible Living habits:
Minimalism: Choosing experiences with friends and family over materialism lessens your footprint.
Plant-based: Eating lower on the food chain reduces greenhouse gases and land and water usage.
Zero Waste: Preventing waste is better than recycling.
Biophilia: Making time to foster a love of nature gives us a reason to care enough to protect it.
Advocacy: Donating our time or money to environmental causes is the only way change happens.
Carbon Positive: It’s time to go beyond carbon neutral to having our lives remove CO2 from the air.
We will have over 130 stalls this year and expand into a third floor. There will be something for everyone and all interests - all packaged in one of the most sustainable and beautiful venues in the world: Marina Barrage!
Excited? We are and hope you are too! We hope to see you on January 20, 2019 from 11 am to 4:30 pm for EarthFest!
The limited tickets are free and available at http://earthfestsingapore.com Those are just a few of the new things we've got brewing.
We'll be releasing all the details via EarthFest Singapore page. A big shout out to Singapore Press Holdings, LingZhi Vegetarian Restaurant, BlueSG and bio-home for sponsoring EarthFest this year!
