Environmentally conscious efforts in Los Altos Hills include the city offering information for their residents on several important issues, from how to save energy, water conservation, recycling, and drought-resistant yard planning. The city has also been forward-thinking in banning the use of plastic bags and styrofoam containers since 2014! Their green initiatives include regional and federal program partnerships all with the goal of reducing negative environmental impacts.
Santa Clara, the county in which Los Altos resides, has several eco-volunteer organizations that diligently work on efforts to better the environment in that county. Grassroots Ecology offers opportunities for people of all ages to participate in restoration projects year-round.
