And leaves no trace …”

Quality of Life - Getting the Word Out at SXSW Eco

SXSW ECO Event

In early October, five evōx members traveled to Austin to participate at the SXSW Eco conference. Over the course of 3 days we interviewed over 40 inspiring people, hosted the Welcome Reception and shared about evōx in the Expo Center (where everyone won a fun evōx-inspired prize). It was an action-packed and fun-filled set of days!
