WHAT WE DO
We believe that everything we do has an impact on the Earth: good and bad. Our work is to create change leaders through programming that facilitates a democratic learning process to understand our waste and consumption patterns so we can begin building better ways of living with the Earth.
We strive to connect people to the process of building a future for all members of our community: One that is environmentally beneficial, healthy, equitable, and compassionate.
CLP engages and supports youth, educators, and communities to innovate ways of changing waste and consumption patterns.
Our goal is to create a world where everyone is an active participant in their own consumption.
Imagine an entire school producing almost no waste. Imagine designing a system to recapture waste as a resource. Imagine youth creating the change.
Our Nearly Zero Project is a toolkit to get whole schools walking on the path to changing the culture of waste in their buildings and believing in their students to lead it.
We spread understanding of the social and environmental effects of what we buy, eat, and how we choose to live.
We innovate ways to limit consumption in everyday life.
We find ways to utilize waste as a resource.
We reclaim & foodscape unused school gardens and relearn how to grow food.
We teach about food sovereignty, food literacy, and how healthy soil makes healthy food.
Created in 2015, Consumption Literacy Project is building change with youth across the spectrum, educators, and communities by learning to see where we consume resources and how we produce waste so that we can innovate ways to switch it up
We are excited about any opportunity to connect with our community. Find out how to get involved by donating, volunteering or partnering with us below!
