Alive! Expo is Coming in Atlanta for All your Green Living Needs!

Alive! Expo, the Southeast’s only and longest-running natural products, green living & total wellness
event will return to the Georgia World Congress Center on May 4th and 5th.  My father and I attended this expo last year and got some great information on all the things that Atlanta and beyond has to offer in the health, wellness, and green living arena. The Alive! expo features health & wellness industry experts, eco companies and natural product manufacturers, fitness and cooking demonstrations, kids’ fitness stations, live health lectures and over 100 vendors so there is definitely something for every one.

“In the nine years that we’ve been producing Alive! Expo, we’ve seen Atlanta become increasingly interested in seeking wellness through a natural and organic approach to a healthy lifestyle,” says Alive! Expo founder and owner Patrycja Siewert Towns. “This means people are seeking out more 'whole foods' from local farmers and product manufacturers but also seeking preventative measures and natural alternatives for health issues; this excitement and interest is palpable at each Alive! Expo and this year will be more engaging than ever.”

At the event, natural and eco product companies will interact with consumers and buyers for local natural food stores; give the latest advice, product samples and information directly to the event attendees. Additionally, there will be wellness lectures, cooking classes, massage stations and fitness demonstrations all weekend long.  Ex Atlanta Falcons fullback, Ovie Mughelli, will once again join Alive! Expo with the “Ovie Mughelli Foundation’s “Recycle on the Run” exhibit, where kids run drills and learn about the importance of fitness, wellness and recycling and being eco friendly.

This year also, a portion of ticket proceeds from Alive! Expo will benefit Project Green, a non-profit founded by Patrycja Siewert Towns, and other non-profits soon to be announced. Project Green is a 501c3 whose mission is to protect green space for future generations and invest in “A Green Tomorrow”. Project Green will develop “Back to Basic” Summer Camps for under-served children and teens. These eco-camps will focus on building self-esteem and awareness of the environment by incorporating challenging and fun activities.

Attendees are encouraged to bring canned food items to the Alive! Expo which will be donated to the Atlanta Food Bank and Hosea Feed the Hungry; the organizations for which Alive! Expo collected over 2,000 pounds of food at last year’s event and over 10,000 pounds of food over the past years.
