Promoting Green Living Ideals with Eco Tuesday’s Nikki Pava

June 18, 2010

Eco Tuesday founder Nikki Pava talks to John and Mike about her eco-inspired event, which gathers one Tuesday each month in cities around the country to promote green living ideals. More than just a social hour, Eco Tuesday provides an educational component that teaches participants how to live greener, more efficient lives. Founded in 2006 in San Francisco, the initial Eco Tuesday event attracted about 60 participants. Now groups of up to 200+ show up every month to network and learn. Currently, Eco Tuesday is on the fourth Tuesday of every month in 10 cities across the U.S., in cities from Los Angeles to Detroit. “I saw that there was a need for a forum where professionals can come together to talk about green issues,” Pava reveals. “They can learn from one another, collaborate and find great solutions to issues that are absolutely pressing.”
