"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has." ~ Margaret Mead
We believe that there is beauty in imperfection. There is no one perfect way to live a sustainable and conscious life. But by taking small, intentional steps, we can create big changes that start in our homes. ECOccasion is here to educate and provide products to help bring low-waste practices into your home.
Building a Future of Leadership in Sustainability
ECOccasion was built with the goal of making a true and lasting difference in the future of sustainable design. We wanted to find a way to support future generations of eco-minded professionals. From that desire came our support of the Minneapolis College of Art and Design (MCAD)’s Sustainable Design Online Program.
This Master's level program provides students with deep education on leading sustainable theory, application, and leadership to develop new programs focused on sustainability. Your donation goes towards supporting students and helping to promote their ideas and achievements. You can also feel good about the products you choose for yourself, your family, or your friends. Learn more about our support for sustainable education and leadership!
A Word from ECOccasion Owner, Kristen Nottingham
I built this low-waste online shop because, perhaps like you, I felt overwhelmed by the plastic pollution crisis and I didn't know what I could do about it. Wasn't it a disappointment to learn that plastic recycling is a myth?
I also created an initiative for Minneapolis College of Art and Design graduates working toward a Master's in Sustainability. ECOccasion customers are helping these recent grads get a leg-up in the sustainability industry.
Thanks for joining me! I can't wait to read your reviews and if you have recommendations for new products for the shop, I would love to hear them.
