Our staff and volunteers actively support sustainability in our community through programs such as our Green Business Certification Program, Truth or Dare Community Challenge, and Zero Waste Teams at Telluride’s festivals, regional events, and much more.

EcoAction Partners originated as The New Community Coalition in 2007 to implement sustainability efforts in San Miguel county. Our 501(c)3 non-profit organization is funded by the Town of Telluride, and San Miguel County. We have also received support in the past and present years from the Telluride Foundation, Faraway Foundation, Mountain Village,Telluride Mountain Village Owners Association and San Miguel Power Association. Our name was changed to EcoAction Partners in the spring of 2012 to emphasize our active role in the community on the forefront of regional sustainability initiatives.
