About Us

We engage communities through education and interactive events to activate more sustainable behaviors that build healthy and equitable communites and heal and protect our natural environment. 

Sustainable Works is an environmental education organization and is currently a project of Community Partners. Our work is made possible by the City of Santa Monica's Sustainable City Plan, our program participants, grants, individual donors, and in-kind service donations from Santa Monica College. Although our programs are designed for Santa Monica residents and businesses, our participants come from all across the greater Los Angeles Area. Sustainable Works is interested in expanding its programs into other cities with a focus on sustainability, resource efficiency or community development.

We exist to ensure that the concepts of sustainability and the actions associated with living a sustainable lifestyle are integrated into the daily activities of individuals, institutions and businesses. We do this by providing hands-on, interactive, educational experiences, serving as a liaison between governments, institutions, businesses and individuals and fostering community development. We turn knowledge into tangible actions that improve our quality of life by promoting sustainable practices in our urban environment. Our goal is to ensure a just society, a clean and healthy environment and a vibrant economy for present and future generations.
