TORONTO, ON – August 8, 2007 – Canada's largest conference and trade show for the natural health and products sector is leading the way in providing information to attendees on how to raise their green profile in the community.
The Canadian Health Food Association (CHFA) presents Expo East, September 6-9, 2007, at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre in Toronto where visitors have the opportunity to attend two days of conference workshops (September 6-7), but also the chance to see the latest developments in the natural health and organic industry at the largest expo of its kind in the country (September 8-9). New this year is a full day of workshops on how to be a green business leader by incorporating solutions that reduce environmental impact.
Presenter, Don Smith, should know. Smith will present a case history of his natural food store, Foodsmiths, September 6 at 1 pm, which won the retailer in Lanark County an environmental stewardship award in July. Not only did Smith install a solar powered hot water heating system, high efficiency refrigeration units, CFC lighting, and utilize compost waste units, his store pays its customers to recycle empty vitamin and supplement bottles!
