Climate & Environment Committee
The mission of the Climate and Environment Committee is to inspire and facilitate energy conservation and environmental stewardship by the Town and its residents through education, government policies, and incentives.
The Climate & Environment (C&E) committee is establishing a C&E Advisory Group that will provide occasional email feedback on committee initiatives. Whether you have a wealth of expertise in sustainability or just an interest in making the Town greener, we would love to work with you on activities that mean the most to you! If you are interested in volunteering, please fill out the form below or email TOCCFriendsofHealthyClimate@Gmail.com
We’ve done lots of the legwork for you! Shades of Green helps you assess your daily decisions from how you travel, to what you eat or buy, to how you fix up your house or tend your yards. Become more aware of the environmental impacts of those decisions and choose greener options.
