Learn about positive, healthy and sustainable living at the 7th annual e4 Life: Green, Health and Wellness Expo on July 23 at the South Florida Science Center and Aquarium (4801 Dreher Trail North) in West Palm Beach.

The South Florida Science Center and Aquarium has teamed up with the West Palm Beach Mayor’s Office of Sustainability to spread messages of sustainability and positivity at the expo, which is from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

“Science is critical to understanding the power of health and wellness,” says Lew Crampton, Science Center CEO in an expo press release. “In addition to hearing about healthy tips, guests can also learn about key sustainability practices, which keep us and our planet healthy for years to come. Our participating vendors and sponsors are top-notch and visitors will surely delight in all of the samples, tips and quality experiences.”

Among the day’s activities: healthy food preparation demonstrations; gardening workshops; education about to reduce the carbon footprint; and information about energy efficiency, transportation and more. Palm Beach Zoo and Conservation Society representatives will be on hand to talk about the zoo’s conservation programs.

Booths at the expo will include representation from the West Palm Beach Mayor’s Office of Sustainability, FPL, Braman Motorcars, ABM, Solid Waste Authority, RGF Environmental and others. A BMW i3 EV will be on display. And guests can take photos with the “Lamborgreenie,” by RGF Environmental. Lamborgreenie is based on the Lamborghini Diablo. It’s an eco-friendly, all electric car that can reach up to 100 mph.

“This year’s partnership with the South Florida Science Center and Aquarium for e4 Life is even more important than ever, as Mayor Muoio just established a West Palm Beach Community Greenhouse Gas reduction target of Net Zero by 2050,” says Penni Redford, manager of the West Palm Beach Mayor’s Office of Sustainability, in the release. “This begins our journey for Net Zero Living – individual small steps can make a big difference when the entire community gets involved!”

The West Palm Beach Mayor’s Office of Sustainability will give out several trees and raffle off rain barrels, to help spread the sustainability message.

The cost for Boca Raton and Delray Beach residents is the price of admission to the South Florida Science Center and Aquarium, which is $15 for adults, $11 for children ages 3 to 12, and $13 for seniors over the age of 60. Science Center members and children younger than 3 are free. And West Palm Beach residents and city employees get half-off the price of admission with proof of residency.
