Sustainable Living Association drops 'Rocky Mountain' from its name
FORT COLLINS - The Rocky Mountain Sustainable Living Association
announced Thursday that it is officially changing its name to become the
"Sustainable Living Association."
The nonprofit Rocky Mountain Sustainable Living Association was founded
in 2003 to build a permanent foundation for the future of the flagship
event the Sustainable Living Fair.
Since then, the organization has expanded to provide year-round
sustainable education and trainings and is modifying its name to better
reflect a growing national audience, according to the announcement.
"We want to emphasize our progress as a leading source for sustainable
living education in the U.S.," said Executive Director Kellie Falbo.
"We have been at the forefront of the sustainability movement in the
Rocky Mountain region for the past decade and the name change gives new
prominence to the increasingly popular trainings we provide."
The 12th Sustainable Living Fair takes place this year on Sept.17 and 18
at Legacy Park in Fort Collins, and is the largest event of its kind in
the Rocky Mountain region. It draws 12,000 people and 250 exhibitors
annually from across the country.
"What we have created here with SLA is something that people all over
the country are seeking to learn," Falbo added. "We hope that through
our name change and enhanced website we are better able to serve
everyone seeking to live a more sustainable life."
