In 2004, when Sustainable Living Roadshow was conceived, we had no idea where it would take us. A decade later, after producing seven regional and national tours and participating in over 200 events around the world, we look back at the emergence of a grassroots sustainability movement in the US. We attempt here to showcase some of the adventures we had along the way.



SLR has worked for over a decade with communities, festivals, volunteers, businesses, musicians, schools and non-profits to create a more sustainable planet. Our experiences on the road, meeting the most generous, inspirational and innovative people, is what made this adventure truly magical. In an effort to understand our impact, as well as to centralize our communities reflection of Sustainable Living Roadshow, we ask that you please take a moment to briefly describe how you encountered the project and reflect on how it has influenced your life. We have set up a forum for your reflections. Thank you for sharing.

    In the Northeast regions of North America, fall is beginning its yearly cascade of colors.  Trees are slowly segueing from verdant opulence to their more bright and bold outfits, their outstretched limbs gaining hues of yellow, orange, ochre, sienna.  Towns are beginning harvest time as they watch the days wane and the air turns crisper […]
