Support for Green Newton’s work helps to promote sustainable solutions to environmental problems facing our city, and beyond.
Green Newton memberships enable us to advocate for environmental progress at both the city and state levels and take action to increase our City’s energy efficiency. Supporting our work also allows Green Newton to offer free environmental programming to the community and support recycling and science-based activities for K-12 students.
Green Newton has made measurable differences for the environment in 2018 by sponsoring and/or offering these events and opportunities:
- Informed residents about Newton Power Choice, the City’s new program to purchase electricity on behalf of Newton residents and our opportunity to have significantly more renewable electricity that is produced in New England
- Produced the Green Expo, showcasing sustainable products and services
- Sponsored Students for a Greener World and its activities, including a student presentation at the library, and its Newton SERVES sneaker-recycling event
- Engaged parents and school staff in the work of Green Newton’s Schools Connections Group, a forum for parents and teachers to promote sustainability in Newton’s schools
- Supported education programs, including the Environmental Science Program
- Helped hundreds of homeowners get Mass Save home energy assessments and weatherization upgrades to save energy and reduce expenses
- Increased residential solar installations with our Newton Goes Solar initiative
- Sponsored eight environmental programs in the Green Newton Series
- Shared environmental information on issues and events via GreenNewton.org, The Green News, Green Lifestyle workshops, e-newsletter, social media and at our Farmers Market booth

With your support in the coming months, we will continue to offer these initiatives and programs, as we actively engage residents and businesses to opt-up to 100% renewable energy in our Newton Power Choice contract. Together we will make a huge positive impact on the environment!
