Eco Market Public Information Session – A real alternative to the Supermarket – 10 September

Posted in Models by Ferne Edwards on August 29th, 2008

Wednesday 10th September, 6.30pm
Friends of the Earth, 312 Smith Street Collingwood

In Spring 2008 Friends of the Earth will revolutionise the way we shop with the development of Australia’s first Eco Market, the sustainable market that will sell all the common items found at a supermarket. All products sold at the Eco Market must meet the standards of the Friends of the Earth environmental, ethical and social criteria. The Eco Market will be a ‘one stop’ shopping destination providing a real alternative to the supermarket.
