I love telling people I live in Santa Barbara. The response is almost always the same: an envious dreamy look that says, "Santa Barbara is amazing. I wish I lived there!" It's true that our little utopia offers an abundance of sunshine, outdoor activity, year-round produce and friendly community that appreciates it all. With such gracious Earthly offerings, Santa Barbara's natural wonders are treasured year-round, but with Earth Day just around the corner-and Santa Barbara being home to the first Earth Day celebration in 1970-we're excited to celebrate Ecotopia in March and April! Ecotopia is a tribute to SB's sustainable side, including the Earth Day Festival, steps you can take to lower your travel footprint, tips on earth-friendly dining, shopping and activities, and information on experiencing Santa Barbara Car-Free.

If you're looking for some quick guides on environmentally-friendly ways to enjoy Santa Barbara, here are a few quick references.

Otherwise, we invite you to visit us on FacebookGoogle+ and Twitter each week for new information on Santa Barbara's "green" scene. Our collection of ideas is sure to inspire the Earth-lover in you!
