Collective solutions start with everyone's actions.
Everyone’s Collective aims to dismantle the exclusivity of the environmental movement and increase people’s understanding of the issues and their role in making a difference - ultimately inspiring local action on global issues. We provide free access to education, resources, opportunities, and mentorship through workshops, community events, and collaborations.
ECo's conservation programming and education efforts focus on the following topics:
Protecting species + spaces
Consumption + waste
Climate change + local impact
Cultivate and support young people’s voices and work, ultimately encouraging them to be thought leaders and doers for a sustainable future.
Empower communities with the knowledge, tools, opportunities, resources, and mentorship necessary to think globally and act locally.
The goal of ECo’s community programming is to increase awareness of environmental issues and solutions and connect community members with the work and initiatives of local changemakers.
Throughout the year, we host many workshops and community events in collaboration with local grassroots environmental organizations and sustainable businesses.
ECo was founded by Baylee Ritter, a self-proclaimed "environmental people person." Baylee's work has spanned many environmental issue areas, including pharmaceutical recycling, plastic pollution prevention, and endangered species protection. Baylee is a National Geographic Young Explorer and serves as the director of Everyone's Collective.
Since opening the brick-and-mortar space in May of 2021, ECo has empowered thousands of people to take action for our shared planet and transition to a eco-friendly lifestyle.
