Sustainable Las Vegas is dedicated to fostering a sustainable local community and economy. Our primary goal is to promote increased use of solar and other renewable forms of energy, conservation of natural resources, and other sustainable practices. We provide education and expertise to the Las Vegas area on these issues.

Programs and Events

Sustainable Homes Tour
Sustainable Las Vegas hosted its annual Sustainable Homes Tour. Key features of past events were a passive solar home and workshop; residential photovoltaic (solar electric) systems; photovoltaic financing possibilities; a geothermal system (ground-source heat pump); energy efficiency; and an example of a commercial energy saving project.

Previous Programs

Rocket Stoves Workshop
Sustainable Las Vegas gave a free, hands-on workshop on rocket stoves at the Las Tusas Ranch. Rocket stoves are a brilliant, low tech, low cost method of heating with small-diameter firewood (even twigs) efficiently and cleanly. The workshop covered basic theory, and included building a functioning mini-rocket stove out of a number 10 can and three soup cans. Construction of a 16 brick rocket stove was also demonstrated.

Recycling Fundraiser

We are currently collecting inkjet cartridges and cell phones as a fundraiser. They no longer recycle laser printer cartridges. Call Cheryl Zebrowski for pick-up: 718-6932

You can also support Sustainable Las Vegas by purchasing recycled cartridges at Planet Green.
