Green Living Live launches alongside Grand Designs

by Emily Wallin

Green Living Live will make its debut at ExCeL London running alongside Grand Designs Live from 30 April-8 May.

The standalone event from Media 10 in partnership with myenergi, is dedicated to educating visitors on eco-friendly and conscious products, and services from companies that put sustainability at the very heart of their business. All tickets to the show will also gain entry to Grand Designs Live.

At a time when the cost of living and the price of energy is soaring, Green Living Live will bring together a host of brands and expertise covering all aspects of eco-home as well as personal transport. Visitors can find products such as eco building materials, insulation, heating and renewable systems, furnishings, and electric car-charging equipment with hundreds of brands on show.

Grand Designs presenter Kevin McCloud has chosen his pick of most revolutionary, useful, eco-friendly gadgets and products on the market for Kevin’s Green Heroes and they will all be showcasing their products at the exhibition.

They include:
• okoform LTD – a stylish and practical desk with built in heating solutions

• Made of Air – a biochar-based carbon-negative material rainscreen panel

• Kibardin Design Studio – a second-life mass-product that could be produced at home using standard cardboard and paper packaging waste.

•Kelda Showers -cutting-edge air-powered showers which use the principles of fuel injection technology.

• BAUX – a 100% bio-based material pushing  the boundaries of cellulosic properties.

McCloud has also invited back 11 of his past Green Heroes to see where they are now and talk about the future of our planet and their products which are paving the way in eco-conscious design and functionality.

The Eco Theatre and Advice Hub will be devoted to issues surrounding sustainability where visitors can discover how to make a home eco-friendly. The theatre and hub will host talks and panel discussions from experts on topics such as how to plan an eco-build or refit a house, advice on how to heat the home in a cost-effective way, how to source sustainable furnishings as well as advice tailored to every project.

A feature designed to inspire and inform, the ModPod Zero Low-Carbon House sponsored by EDF, showcases how to achieve zero heating bills with free advice on hand and visitors will be able to walk through a ready-made single-storey modular home.

Another feature not to be missed is GREEN GRADS, where more than 20 recent graduates from UK universities will be presenting in person their ideas for a greener and cleaner future with a mix of ‘green’ products, installations, and films that portray sustainability, biophilia, and biodiversity.
