ECOFaith Santa Barbara

ECOFaith is a coalition of diverse, local faith communities and individuals who are working together to lower carbon emissions and get on the Path of Sustainability. We acknowledge that Earth is in environmental peril and that collaborative leadership is needed to protect and preserve our living planet.

ECOFaith builds on the convictions from many religious and independent spiritual traditions to address the urgent needs of the environment. Drawing on and working with ongoing efforts of other community agencies and organizations we seek to achieve the following:

  • Work towards energy efficiency and conservation in our houses of faith and the homes and businesses of congregants by reducing the carbon footprint.
  • Educate and encourage people and congregations to adopt environmentally sustainable lifestyles as a dimension of spiritual practice.
  • Partner with the broader community to create a healthy environment.
