SLRER is proud to have “Green BIG” join us to recognize green businesses from Carson, Douglas and Lyon counties.
About Green Big: The Carson Valley, Carson City and Dayton Chambers of Commerce recently announced a green business program called the Green Business Improvement Group. The Green Business Improvement Group (GREEN BIG) is a cooperative group of community leaders, environmental experts, and business leaders from Carson City, Douglas County, and Lyon County. The group will recognize businesses for green business practices; educate business owners on best environmental business practices; and encourage citizens in the community to support green businesses and to understand why environmental sustainability is important.
The organization known as Sustainable Living and Renewable Energy Roundup (SLRER) is an educational non-profit that holds several educational events throughout the year including a Green Living Fest every September.
Our mission is to promote sustainable practices, renewable energy use, and environmental responsibility in the way we work, play, and live.
SLRER was started in late 2006 by a group of people who wanted to promote sustainable living. Now in our seventh year, we are still a volunteer-run, educational non-profit working to inform and empower people in order to build a more sustainable community. Every year, we sponsor a green living festival in the Carson Valley, NV to share information about gardening, alternative energy, eating healthy and living better. We enjoy bringing local businesses, organizations and community members together to learn from each other.
We are a non-profit organization and greatly appreciate the support we get from the community and businesses in supporting our goals. If you would like to donate to help us make our festival even better, please click on the button below. Thank You!
The event includes informational workshops, exhibits and an interactive Discovery Center with fun activities for kids - making smoothies with the bike blender, baking in solar ovens and how to make your own paper. The event is free to the public. We hope you will join us! The workshop schedule is available on ourFest Info - Workshops page. If you would like to help with the planning of the event or just becoming more involved, please go to the volunteer page.
