Vegan Village at The Better Living Show

Tweet Share on Facebook

March 1, 2013

Come help us celebrate the 5th year of the Vegan Village at the Better Living Show on March 22-24 at the Portland Expo Center. The Better Living Show is the largest Sustainable Lifestyle event in the Northwest. Bigger, better and jam-packed with companies and organizations dedicated to providing the best the plant-based lifestyle has to offer. Amour Vert leads the way in eco-fashion and is co-sponsoring the Vegan Village this year. Frontier Natural Products Co-op is on board to sponsor the Vegan Demo Series at the backyard patio of the Blue Home -- a full sized house showcasing how to do it all green and sustainable. Check out the amazing lineup. Bring friends and introduce them to this lifestyle with such welcoming products like Manitoba Harvest Hemp, Mamma Chia beverage, Food for Life bread, Taza Chocolate, Townshend's Tea and more.

Try new-to-the-Vegan Village items like RoBarr barley beverage, Runa Tea and Raw Revolution bars. Northwest VEG has been there since the first show 6 years ago and we welcome them back again. A great place to sample new items from well-loved brands like Tofurky, Uncle Eddie's Cookies and Coconut Bliss! And there is even something special for the gardener, but we are not giving it all away -- come see for yourself! Vegan Village Coordinators, Chef Al and Donna B! invite you to come for the weekend and learn all there is to know about the local, sustainable, green scene and the latest offerings in everything from paint to gardening products to transportation. Admission is FREE. For more information, go to; and for Sponsor or Exhibitor information contact Donna Benjamin at
