Join us for for a 3-day virtual community event called Sustainable Solution that will take place September 18-20th.  We are celebrating 20 years of the Sustainable Living Association’s efforts along with the businesses and community members who have helped Fort Collins gain national recognition for its sustainability initiatives.

Schedule of Events


We will be sharing community stories on how sustainability practices have grown and gone mainstream over the last two decades and we’d love for you to participate!!  Donate to our Sustainable Solutions Fundraising Campaign during our 20th Year Celebration September 18-20th and help us reach our goal of $10,000.



  • Inspire our youth to become environmental leaders.
  • Develop our Community Conversation Kit on climate change to help people better understand the issues.
  • Fuel our efforts to help craft a plastics policy to keep pollution out of our rivers and streams.
  • Continue our efforts to protect our natural places through outreach and education.

During our 3-day celebration we’ll share tips and action items to help people incorporate more sustainable practices into their lives at home and at work.


During virtual Coffee Chats and Happy Hours, we will hear from community members on what sustainability issues are most important to them now and how we can help to meet those needs.


We’re also including various fun, educational activities that people can participate in on their own like our self-guided bicycle scavenger hunt that will direct community members to area businesses in a hunt to find all the clues we’ve laid out for them along the way.


We are committed to keeping the momentum on environmental protections that will protect our planet for many more years to come.


We appreciate the trust you have placed in us over the last two decades and look forward to sharing your stories, successes and challenges on your journey to live a more sustainable lifestyle.
