Behind the Scenes at The Green Expo

Wow, this past weekend was so much fun. We arrived at the Expo on Friday and spent most of the day buzzing around the different exhibits. There was so much to see from eco activisim (Koeberg Alert Alliance, Treasure the Karoo and Greenpop) to very cool green tech (Elabel’s smart phone App) that we began to wonder how we would fit it all into one episode.

Then I had this crazy idea to film the expo from an electric scooter! Andy Le May of Icologie kindly agreed to drive us round and host the show!  All I can say is that something really exciting was born… (stay tuned for the big reveal in 2012).

Here are some pics to whet your appetite.
