Our Vision

ECOSS envisions thriving communities that are environmentally sustainable and equitable.

Who We Are

Since the 1990s, ECOSS has been a leading urban environmental nonprofit serving underrepresented and overburdened communities and businesses in the Greater Seattle area. Formerly known as the Environmental Coalition of South Seattle, ECOSS specializes in bridging knowledge and cultural gaps through equitable community engagement and partnerships, promoting sustainable solutions that work not just for some, but for all.

Our international staff speak more than a dozen languages and work with Asian, Southeast Asian, Pacific Islander, African and Latino communities. More than two decades of experience and cultural depth make ECOSS a leader in multicultural environmental outreach and engagement.
