COMMUNITY RESOURCES FOR GREENING MASSACHUSETTS
The Mass Green Network is a confederation of people across Massachusetts concerned with reducing the plastic bags, Styrofoam cups, and disposable bottles that blight our communities, clog our waste streams, choke our wildlife, squander our resources, and poison our earth. Our members include people from nonprofit organizations, city and state government, green businesses, faith communities, neighborhood associations, and grassroots groups. Join us!
Saturday, February 20
9:30 am - 3:30 pm
Wellesley Free Library
Across Massachusetts, 18 communities have passed ordinances and bylaws regulating plastic bags, 10 have passed laws reducing Styrofoam and other forms of polystyrene, and 2 have restricted the distribution of bottled water.
Now, the Mass Green Network wants to help your town join the fight against disposables. Join like-minded citizens on February 20th for our first-ever summit. Meet grassroots activists and experts working to reduce plastic waste. Panels and workshops will focus on learning what worked in other communities, understanding the hidden costs of disposables, crafting effective legislation, and building a winning campaign.

The summit is free and open to everyone who wants to be part of the solution. Register to reserve your spot today! Any questions? Email us!
