What they say about Ecothropic?

I have known and worked with Britt since 2015 on different projects in the Pacific. She brings a unique combination of environmental knowledge, compassion and story-telling to her work, and is always full of new ideas and energy. Britt is professional and a pleasure to work with, and I’d definitely work with her again. Her community-focused knowledge of climate change impacts and positive actions is an asset to any project aiming for a sustainable and empowered future.
— Johanna Johnson, C2O Consulting
Britt consulted with our conservation group to identify meaningful ways for 75 young leaders to identify and plan for climate threats across the Colorado Plateau. She was flexible, adaptive, and a pleasure to work with...Our group was concerned with tackling social and environmental justice across a very broad area, and Britt’s vision and experience helped make that seem accessible. I can’t wait to see the growth that happens over the next several months.
