Donate-a-Dime: Environmental Education Association of NM

For every reusable shopping bag you use at La Montañita Co-op in February 2018, you’ll reduce your carbon footprint, and we’ll donate a dime to the Environmental Education Association of New Mexico (EEANM)! It all adds up — we’ve given more than $180,000 to community organizations through our Donate-a-Dime program.

EEANM works to connect people with nature to reverse the trends of children spending dramatically less time outside and more time disconnected from the environment. Here are their goals in their own words:

  • To encourage and support implementation of high quality environmental education curricula that leads to an environmentally literate citizenry. To determine needs of New Mexico educators for environmental education.
  • To provide and increase awareness of EEANM programs and resources to New Mexico environmental educators. to serve as a resource network to share information among people involved in environmental education in New Mexico.
  • To serve existing members through conferences, regional meetings, projects that support EE, and workshops.
  • To foster and support participation by members of diverse groups within New Mexico.
