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. Education is critical to our organization, as when people are more informed about environmental issues, they can be more conscious of the impacts of their daily choices and are more inspired and empowered to create positive change.
