If you’re reading this, then you are probably EPIC. Why are we flattering you so? Because EPIC stands for Ethical, Progressive, Intelligent Consumer. Surely you consider yourself to be all of those things.

EPIC is the newest North American business-to-consumer sustainable living expo, launching its inaugural event in Vancouver in March. Like a new-fangled LOHAS for tech-savvy design-fiending urbanites, EPIC has identified a market segment and they are working to solidify the connections between the producers and the buyers.

”Today’s ethical consumers know they have the power to create change. Businesses in the know are following suit, creating forward thinking products and services that appeal to this growing audience…This inspirational exhibition is for people who want to make smarter decisions but don’t want to sacrifice on design, quality or price. It’s an event for consumers to find new products and companies they can believe in.”

Epic will feature not only an expo, but also a full program of speakers and a fashion show. I will be speaking alongside Inhabitat editor, Emily Pilloton on Saturday night, March 17. And, as a media partner, Inhabitat will be covering the event live, as well as doing some pre-show features. So stay tuned…
