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. I received my Bachelor’s from Colorado College in Environmental Science with an emphasis in chemistry. I earned my Master’s degree in Environmental Horticulture, with an ecosystem restoration focus from the University of Washington. I moved back to Idaho and landed in Boise where I found that there is need to create more sustainable communities and lifestyles.
