New years resolutions usually consist of getting into healthier habits that affect the body and mind, but what if you could extend your resolution to having a healthier home? Well next year’s 35th annual Home, Garden and Green Living Expo, coming to Greater Victoria, has you covered.

For the first time, the show will focus on sustainability, green living and energy efficiency in an aim to keep living costs low while making your home’s impact on the planet a little less.

Darcy Hope, president of Evergreen Exhibitions, says he hopes this year’s new green theme will help draw crowds that may have never thought about attending a home show before.
