As an educational non-profit organization, the Sustainable Living Association appeals to all of us as users of the earth’s natural resources. SLA targets those interested in, curious about, or deeply involved in sustainable living options.
As educated community members, we can each reduce the impact on our environment by developing sustainable lifestyles. Living a sustainable lifestyle ensures that social, environmental and economic systems offer a healthy and meaningful life for our citizens, without compromising these factors for future generations.
This is a program that not only elevates one's skills and level of awareness, but provides inspiration and value along the way.
This program provides a great opportunity to step away from your day to day job duties, reflect on how sustainability topics overlap with your responsibilities, and develop strategies on how to champion sustainability efforts within your organization.
Sustainability needs to assume its proper place in business and our personal thought processes and this program can help spur it.
This program has left me with a long list of initiatives that I am excited to take back to my company to get us to a new level of eco-consciousness. Both the people and the program have been truly inspiring!
