CoolMom Seattle

CoolMom is a nonprofit organization based in Seattle, WA whose mission is to unite moms and families to make informed lifestyle choices, protect our climate, and advocate for a healthy planet. Established in 2007, CoolMom’s vision is a healthy planet for kids and families. CoolMom works with the environmental community to help moms and families reduce their carbon footprint through our programs. Climate change is shaping our children’s future. It is the most important issue of our time. If we do not take important steps in all levels of government and in our communities and homes, we will leave behind little resources and challenging times for our children.

CoolMom is directed by a volunteer board and operates with the help of neighborhood chapter leads. For more information, please visit www.coolmom.org.

We have many wonderful volunteers and successful programs. For example, our Think Outside the Car project helps educate and connect a community. The program allows for families and residents to get involved through community. It promotes better health, cleaner air, and money and energy savings for families. We also encourage families to start Walking School Buses and Bike Trains. One elementary school took on this campaign in the Spring of 2011 and reduced their car idling by more than 88%! Our newest project is the Local Low Waste Lunchbox. The project promotes local low waste lunches in partnership with local food suppliers and low waste products.
