ECOFaith is a local faith-based initiative mobilizing churches, synagogues, mosques, temples and other religious communities to eliminate local causes of global warming in their buildings and practices. ECOFaith was formed in 2008, with the encouragement of US Congresswoman Lois Capps and a grant from the James S. Bower Foundation.
Faith-based organizations supporting ECOFaith Santa Barbara are making clear the implicit environmental imperatives contained in their traditional scriptures, doctrines and ethical precepts. ECOFaith mobilizes and supports these efforts by providing expert consultants and a comprehensive process for energy efficient design, planning, building and renovation, water-saving landscaping, and educational activities for diverse congregations.
