Eco Home Show

The Eco Home show opened last month at the Geffrye Museum, East London. Co curated by Alex Goddard of the Geffrye Museum and designer / tv presenter Oliver Heath. It is well worth a visit (you've got until February 2010) - stylishly put together, sensitive and creative use of reclaimed materials for the displays, informative, hands on and fun and it includes work by pioneering eco designers!

TONIGHT! (7 - 9pm) There is a thought provoking debate at the Geffrye Museum, which explores issues around making our homes greener. Chaired by Alex Godard, on the panel is Oliver Heath, Tom Savinger - Future Laboratory, David Kenington - Energy Saving Trust and Sean Allam - John Lewis (show sponsor)

Info taken from Geffrye Museum's website: This exhibition hopes to address, without preaching, widespread and increasing concerns about ecology and the state of the planet and how this links to our homes and the way we use, decorate and inhabit them. It will examine current ideas around ‘eco-living’ in an informative and timely way. The climate change agenda is having an impact on almost every area of life and the home is no exception. Recycling and saving energy have, for some, been part of daily life for generations but today they have a new significance and urgency. The mantra ‘Reduce, Reuse, Recycle’ is prompting us to change our habits and there are now a plethora of products out there to help us........
