EcoLiving Events was founded in 2002 in Calgary, demonstrating a proven track record of success with all of the events have been volunteer-driven.
Red Deer picked up the event in 2013 as an evolution of the local Seedy Sunday seed swap. EcoLiving brings environmental innovators together to talk about their projects and to learn from each other. This interaction between innovators is very important, as it builds relationships and could lead to new or improved technologies. EcoLiving provides events to teach about ways to reduce our collective ecological footprint, create more sustainable and energy efficient buildings, and share information about local environmental initiatives and services. These events show citizens how to save money while using fewer resources.
