September 11, 2007
Written by Greenhouse Canada
Glee, an international trade event held in Birmingham, England, for the garden, pet and leisure industries, is introducing the industry’s first-ever Going Green show at the Sept. 16-18, 2007, edition of the show. The new initiative will make it easier for buyers to pinpoint environmentally friendly products and suppliers.

Glee will feature hundreds of exhibitors, from global brands to specialist manufacturers, displaying Glee’s symbolic Going Green logo on their stands to indicate the presence of a sustainable or eco-friendly buying opportunity. Details of the participants will be featured on all of Glee’s listings and the website, www.gleebirmingham.com, enabling buyers to plan and target their visit towards greener products that meet this burgeoning market trend. Seminar sessions on the theme will also take place as part of the Glee seminar program.

All Glee exhibitors will be informed of the new Going Green initiative and already, more than 300 companies are thought to be eligible to participate. Products suitable for Going Green will include: mulch and other natural resources; biodegradable packaging; organically grown plants; products made of wood from sustainable sources; organic food and drink including organic pet food; natural products; eco-friendly garden care products; wildlife products; water-saving devices; products made of recycled materials, and much more.

This year’s Glee show is also scheduled to have the largest contingent of North American manufacturers ever.
