Sustainable Crested Butte originated as a group of people trying to pass an ordinance to regulate single-use bags in town. However, single-use bags were just the first issue we plan to tackle. We have since grown into an organization with an aim of encouraging people to make sustainable choices in their everyday lives. Education is a critical component of our organization because we believe that when people are educated about environmental issues, they are more conscious of the impacts of the choices they make daily.
