Our friends at Climate Smart Missoula, under the unwavering leadership of Amy Cilimburg, recently celebrated two years of building a climate smart community and the community showed up to help.
We were honored to be the recipients of two 2017 Climate Smarty Pants Awards – and accompanying “smarty pants” – for our community sustainability efforts.
Steve Nelson along with MMW Architects received a “Master in the (Fine) Art of Community Building” for overseeing construction of the collaborative Summer Smart Shade Shelter project in which reuse featured prominently. Steve’s “smarty pants” were a well-worn set of Carhartt overalls.
Jeremy Drake won a “Catalyst of Change” award for catalyzing Missoula’s move toward Zero Waste by offering a framework to unify community waste reduction efforts (Zero Waste) and by providing the expertise to make it happen. Jeremy – dubbed Tsar of Zero Waste by Chase Jones – received a secondhand pair of doctor’s scrubs.
We are grateful for the opportunity to do this work in our community with so many amazing, committed, hard-working folks and we are excited for what’s to come.

We will be closed Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
