VisionCreate a community that cares about a healthy and sustainable environment.

Mission: Live Thrive Atlanta empowers people, organizations, communities and businesses to make positive, healthy and sustainable changes to the environment.

Live Thrive Atlanta is an Atlanta-based nonprofit organization working since 2010 to create a community that cares about a healthy and sustainable environment. We started as a blog sharing sustainable efforts of individuals, communities, and local businesses large and small.

To fulfill our mission, Live Thrive Atlanta organized the City of Atlanta’s first household hazardous waste collection in September 2010. Attendance was well over 500 – diverting over 75,000 pounds of waste from our water system and landfills. To date we have organized seven additional events. Through these events, we realized the need for a permanent drop-off facility for these hard to recycle materials, and CHaRM was created.

How do we teach our children to conserve and preserve? Simple answer: start early and lead by example! Live Thrive is working to bring environmental education to all levels through the CHaRM facility.

It would not be possible to run the CHaRM facility without volunteers and donations. Make your community a healthier place. Get involved!
