About Me

Hi, I'm Blake Schnebly and I believe in SustainingUS. I started this organization to create positive changes. I grew up in Hailey, ID and I have spent most of my life loving the outdoors and the outdoor classroom. I believe in experiential education, from-scratch cooking, local food, sustainable consumption, and the power of community.


Education

Facilitate student driven experiences, encouraging the creation of novel solutions to current resource based issues

Sustainability

Encouraging a triple bottom-line approach to best use our resources in the most efficient way, ensuring a high quality of life today and forever.

Experience

There is amazing education and perspective that can be gained by real life experiences, the outdoor classroom is a powerful tool.
