How Colorado Plastic Ends up in the Ocean:

Sustainable Crested Butte emerged out of the grassroots movement to regulate single-use bags in town. Single-use bags, however, were just the beginning, and we have since grown into an organization that aims to encourage people to make sustainable choices in their everyday lives. 

Our mission is to promote environment sustainability in the Gunnison Valley through education, advocacy, public outreach, and community initiatives. Our vision is to accelerate the Gunnison Valley’s transformation into a model of global environmental action. Through our advocacy and programs, we empower visitors and community members to champion environmental sustainability.
