About Ecovian

Ecovian is an online green city guide created by a community of passionate members dedicated to living a sustainable lifestyle. Ecovian city guides are a comprehensive sources of regional green living information, covering topics such as where to find organic & local food (CSA programs, farmers markets, organic restaurants, grocery stores, etc.), natural clothing & baby stores, eco-friendly cleaning services, solar system installers, and many other green resources & local businesses. City guides also provide an up to date calendar of upcoming green & environmental lectures, talks, and events, and a community discussion group where the latest regional environmental news & policy issues are posted and discussed.

Ecovian city guides are collectively developed via active member participation. Members share their insights into local sustainable and eco-conscious resources in order to help others green their own lives. A voting system helps distinguish green local businesses from those which are merely greenwashing.

Ecovian city guides are currently provided for the San Francisco Bay Area, Los Angeles, Seattle, New York City, San Diego, Sacramento, Portland, Denver, and Chicago areas.
