Foundation

OVERVIEW

Description

In the late 1990s, when we realized we needed a new home and the world needed a natural model of building, we bought a 100-year-old warehouse.

Originally constructed as a warehouse in 1895, we used 98 percent of the original materials to rebuild it into “The Natural Capital Center” with the help of an extraordinary gift from philanthropist and founding board member Jean Vollum.

Today, the Natural Capital Center stands as a pioneer of green building and is Ecotrust’s headquarters, but also is home to over two dozen social enterprises that are changing the way we live, work, and do business.
