      Greetings AustinEcoNetworkers!
      This Austin Green Living and Home Products Expo event starts tomorrow and goes through Sunday. It’s a sort of blend of the Austin Home and Garden Show and the Austin Green Festival. This is the first time they are trying this and I will be working with them in the future to implement more green event techniques but it looks like they have lined up a bunch of good speakers (see below) and some cool exhibitors will be there.
      There is a $1 off admission coupon below. Please come by at some point and visit me. I will be hosting a booth for the AustinEcoNetwork and would love your company and input. We will be sharing and gathering information that will be in the Green Map of Austin that will hopefully be published later this year.
      If you can’t see the below it is all on their website
