London Holiday Eco Fair

In London this weekend and looking for something Green to do?

Try the Christmas Eco Fair at the Royal Geographic Society in South Kensington. It should really be named the Holiday Eco Fair to be more accurate, since countries and people from around the world are being represented from Tibetan refugees to Africans and Peruvians, but the official name is the Christmas Eco Fair. The Eco Fair is highlighting organic, handmade, and fair trade goods from around the world as well as workshops such as making puppets from recycled materials. Many of the vendors are businesses that support humanitarian work like The Pin Project, which helps support children orphaned by AIDs in Africa by providing income through beadwork made by over sixty grandparents of the children. See the Web link to learn more about the special vendors at this Christmas Fair.

Christmas Eco Fair, Royal Geographical Society, 1 Kensington Gore, London, SW7 2AR. The main entrance is on Exhibition Road, at the Kensington Gore end and the nearest tube station is South Kensington. Open Saturday December 5th from 9:30 to 5:00 pm and Sunday December 6th from 10:00 am to 4:00pm
