EcoAction Arlington, local NoVA environmental advocacy, education and volunteer non-profit
EcoAction Arlington was founded in 1978 by the Arlington County Department of Public Works as a Clean Community member of Keep America Beautiful. During the 1980s, EcoAction Arlington started to address environmental issues beyond litter and began focusing its efforts on recycling. During the 1990’s, EcoAction Arlington disaffiliated from Keep America Beautiful but continued to focus on litter and worked comfortably with the local business community.
Today, EcoAction Arlington remains a volunteer organization focusing on local environmental issues including green living, litter, and invasive plants, with additional programs in the areas of watershed resources and schoolyard education.
