Our Mission
ECOMB is a Florida 501 (c) 3 not-for-profit volunteer-based corporation was founded in 1994 in the City of Miami Beach. The organization, managed by a Board of Directors and Executive Director, is dedicated to educating Miami-Dade County’s residents and visitors to adopt responsible environmental behaviors and to raising their awareness to our surrounding ecosystems. Its commitment is supported by the development and implementation of various programs in an effort to achieve the following objectives:

  • Reduce the amount of litter in Dade County'' beaches, waterways, parks, islands and wetlands;

  • Increase the county’s residential and business recycling rates;

  • Preserve and restore our sensitive ecosystems, such as near shore coral reefs, beach dunes, islands, mangroves, and Biscayne Bay waters.

  • Encourage community members to adopt new lifestyle practices that are more environmentally sustainable.

In order to address these and other environmental challenges the community faces each year, ECOMB strives to promote better interactions between residents, visitors, businesses and government agencies. ECOMB believes that by educating and encouraging them to get involved and act responsibly regarding the environment we live and work in, we will be able to improve our quality of life, save local government' resources, live more sustainably and, thus, preserve our environment for generations to come.

By working closely, and in partnership, with both local and national nonprofits and corporations, local volunteer groups, schools and government agencies, ECOMB organizes beaches, islands and canals cleanups, environmental educational seminars and eco-sensitive awareness events each year.
