A healthy environment is the underpinning of a good life for ourselves and our children. Without clean air, sustainable food systems and secure water supplies, nothing else matters.

For over 45 years, CEC has led the environmental movement by advocating and creating innovative community-based solutions to preserve and protect our natural resources. Recycling, community gardens, hazardous waste collection, renewable energy, plastic reduction – these and every other program we embark on result in a cleaner, healthier tri-county region.

As a climate-focused, solutions-oriented nonprofit, we rely on philanthropic investment from our community. Our supporters are our HEROES.

Thank you to our 2017 Donors
