Sustainability Initiatives


"Sustaining Edmonds"

The City of Edmonds has put in place a coordinated set of plans and programs designed to support the City in taking a leadership role in moving toward sustainability. Most of the resultant actions have been accomplished by integrating these principles into city operations; these accomplishments have been achieved during difficult economic times, with shrinking city budgets and limited resources. From being first in Washington State to ban single-use plastic bags to partnering with the private sector to increase the production and use of alternative energy and technologies through the Community Solar Project, this commitment benefits the citizens, environment, and economy of Edmonds.
