What is the Living Lightly Fair?

Living Lightly is a FREE resource fair for sustainable lifestyles, held each September on the Minnetrista campus in Muncie, Indiana.

Living Lightly is aimed at educating East Central Indiana residents about practical ways to live more sustainably, saving money and resources for themselves and future generations.

Sustainable Living practices consider the environmental, economic, and social impacts of the management and use of our natural resources. Resources that are used sustainably can be maintained for use by future generations.
