In the News

Solana Center for Environmental Innovation is very excited to announce a partnership with the Rob Machado Foundation's GREEN TEAM for the 10th Annual Switchfoot BroAm Surf Competition and Concert on Saturday, July 12th. We are putting together a team of volunteers to assist event goers in making sure that trash hits the appropriate can and that anything recyclable will be diverted from the landfill!   Please email your interest to Andrea Loyko via email at or you may sign up immediately here.  

Who We Are

Solana Center  touches more than 10,000 San Diego County residents each year  through its environmental education and community outreach programs.  We educate approximately 4,500 San Diego County students each year and provide more than 600 compost and worm bins annually. Each year we add capacity and infrastructure to divert 1.3 million pound of organic waste from landfills.

For 30 years, Solana Center has worked at the grass roots level to encourage the community to change the way they think about their environment.  We promote the sustainable management of resources through education, and hope that people will begin to rethink the products they use and how we can reduce our impact on the planet.
