Environmental Coaltion of South Seattle
Founded in 1994, ECOSS is a community-based non-profit organization working to protect our region's natural resources, assist local businesses and provide information to residents. We provide multilingual, environmentally-oriented education, technical resources, and other services that protect our watersheds, reduce pollution and hazardous wastes, conserve water and energy, and assist property owners in cleaning up contaminated land. Originating in, and still operating out of the South Park neighborhood in south Seattle, ECOSS arose from an interest in creating a working partnership among different segments of our community—residents, businesses, industry and government—to collaboratively address environmental and community development needs of this area. Today, ECOSS plays an active role in projects throughout the Puget Sound region.
