For nearly two decades the Sustainable Living Association has been at the forefront of the sustainable living and lifestyle movement in our region. As a community working collectively, our impact continues to grow through outreach and education.
We are a non-profit organization committed to applying vision and expertise towards a sustainable future for all. We are a solution driven organization with the distinguishing quality to move people towards powerful and profound choices in an effort to stave off complacence about issues affecting our world.
Our educational programs and events offer creative challenges, delivering valuable, long-term benefits for a wide range of community interests that improve the relationship between people and the planet.
