In addition to developing positively impacting "sustainability" projects, and offering making public presentations, we have produced a number of community based events - designed to educate and inspire attendees to take action in their daily lives that will benefit themselves, their communities, and our world. We always work with thoroughly vetted business and vendors to ensure that our events are carried out in the most positively impacting way possible.

Vegas style gaming tables were set-up, as well as a poker tournament, while attendees enjoyed organic hors d’oeuvres and cocktails, live music, and terrific prizes throughout the evening.

The Slam | Sunday, June 27, 2010 | Volcom Skatepark, Costa Mesa
The Slam was a skateboarding festival attended by over 3000 people that raised money for victims of domestic abuse. Ecofficiency.Org was hired to guarantee that the event was produced and maintained in a sustainable fashion. The power used for The Slam was generated through bio-diesel and all waste was recycled and/or composted. Because of the large amount of attendees, individual waste stations were set-up and monitored by volunteers to ensure that trash was placed in the correct receptacle. All marketing collateral for the event was made with recycled paper with vegetable inks, and an eco education area was set-up at the event to demonstrate to people how The Slam was created sustainably.
