The Expat Fairs is holding the Sustainable September Fair at Winestone at Mercure, spotlighting small businesses, artisans, and social enterprises with one common goal: sustainable living.

With free admission on Saturday 7 September, 12.30pm to 7pm, visitors will find a gathering of ethical products and gifts for all seasons.

Sustainable living supports mindful consumption habits and positive affect all year round. The Sustainable September Fair introduces shoppers to a curated gathering of over 20 businesses that support fair trade, indigenous peoples and needy communities, alongside green initiatives that use sustainable, natural material and recycled matter.

Shoppers can enjoy ethical and eco-friendly shopping with fair-trade organic produce and edible treats, statement artisanal fashion and jewelry, environmentally-responsible tableware and home decor, and much more that are not only guilt-free, but also socially impactful. For those who don't know where to start, The Sustainable September Fair is the perfect event to begin living and  shopping sustainably.

The Winestone restaurant's concept revolves around the key words: simple, attractive, authentic and affordable - an appropriate location for the fair with its genuine offerings. Winestone welcomes visitors to dine-in on the fair's date, granting a 25% lunch or dinner voucher for immediate or future use.

Alongside esteemed venue partners Novotel and Mercure Hotels, The Expat Fairs hopes to support ethical and sustainable living in Singapore with the Sustainable September Fair.
