1. It shows you the eco-friendly way to do things
The main focus of the fair is sustainability. If you want to learn how to create beautiful art from waste, watch interesting films on sustainable fashion and design, munch on organic food, the fair gives you interesting ideas to lead a more eco-friendly life.

One of most eco-conscious things you can do is be mindful of consumption. The fair is echoing this concept with a saree swapping pop-up at the fair.

5. There are interesting panels discussions
One of the biggest dilemmas about going eco-friendly is wondering if the products you are using match your environmental ethics. A few brands claim to be more sustainable than they actually are, a process which is called ‘greenwashing.’ Evelyn Mora, the founder of Helsinki Fashion Week, will help you decode branding language to figure out if your favourite brands adhere to sustainability standards.
