Green market at Pretoria botanical gardens

flyerThis Saturday (Feb 7), pack your picnic blankets and head over to the National Botanical Gardens in Pretoria for the Green Market.

There’s live entertainment: Leon Ecroignard from ‘Optelgoed is Dansgoed’ will make music from recyclable trash (which should be interesting) and you can see fun interactive demonstrations of the Nia technique, which is a combination of dancing, martial arts, yoga etc, and much more.

Products on sale range from natural raw foods and drinks, green baby products, natural make-up and skin care, solar products and other energy saving products, worm farms and recycled art.

There’s also a recycling station where you the public can bring your clean recyclable trash. You can bring plastic; polystyrene; dry, clean paper; glass; cans and electronic waste like cellphones, old broken printers, CD’s and any electronic device you want to get rid of.

The market is a way to educate and raise awareness of the importance and the benefits of a greener lifestyle, say the organisers. So they urge people to bring their families and friends together with their picnic blankets and shopping bags for a nice eco-conscious day in the gardens.
