SLF2013 was all about making it!

More than 11,000 people came down to the Hobart Waterfront to celebrate sustainability. We learned how to make everything from Sourdough Bread and Preserves to felted clothing and retaining walls. We got to watch some amazing Tasmanians at work, creating treasurers such as violins of Tasmanian timber, leather shoes, hand spun and dyed wool, silver jewellery, and lots more.

We even made it statewide for the first time, with festival events in Burnie, Launceston, the Derwent Valley and the Huon Valley. A huge thank you to everyone that was involved, especially our wonderful sponsors and dedicated volunteers! SLF 2014 will be on 8 & 9 November, so put it in your calendar now!

Celebrating Sustainability


Wow, that was amazing! 2013 has officially been the best ever Sustainable Living Festival!

With festival events around the State in early November and an enormous Festival weekend in Hobart, this year surpassed all expectations!  A huge thank you to our sponsors: Decorama; K & D Warehouse; Hobart City Council; Hydro Tasmania: Eumarrah; and the Mercury!  Also, our team of wonderful volunteers who did just about everything!  We couldn't have done it with out you!

Celebrating its 15th year, the Sustainable Living Festival (SLF) has long been a highlight of the Tasmanian event calendar. On 9th & 10th November 2013, we had the Hobart waterfront buzzing with 11,000 people eager to connect and engage with sustainability and with those businesses and organisations who can help them make their dreams a reality.  

"The Sustainable Living Festival was fabulous! I had never been before, but my friends spent all day Saturday there with their 2 kids and had such a great time that they convinced us to come back with them on Sunday! We had so much fun,Thank you!" ~ attendee quote

Coordinated by Sustainable Living Tasmania, SLF is a
 community celebration of sustainability. Come and join the excitement!
