Organizational Overview

Started in 2007, GreenTown Los Altos achieves its mission through educational efforts, programs and policy work focused on helping the community reduce waste, water, energy use, and car trips. GreenTown’s success depends on having a strong group of volunteers involved in and helping lead the activities and the programs.
