Sustainability might have become a bit of a buzzword lately, but the National Sustainable Living Festival has been flying the flag for decades. The organisation has been around for nearly 20 years, encouraging Australians to adopt more eco-conscious lifestyles. 

The 2018 festival runs throughout the entire month of February and will feature sustainability experts from Australia and across the globe. This year the theme of the 300-plus event festival is 'Climate Crunch Time'. That means lots of talks, workshops, films, and art and design events aimed at getting as many people as possible working towards a healthier climate. 

One of the festival highlights will be the Big Weekend happening between Friday February 9 and Sunday February 11. Held at Birrarung Marr and Fed Square, the weekend will showcase around 150 exhibitors championing sustainable products, services and programs.
