Sustainable Sandhills Offers 'Green' Programs
Sustainable Sandhills wants to sustain Earth Day throughout the year.
Although Wednesday is the official Earth Day, a spokesperson for Sustainable Sandhills says the non-profit organization is willing to provide opportunities for community members to go green at home, at work and throughout the community with the Certified Green Business program and Community Action Team meetings.
Sustainable Sandhills, working in local communities, is committed to protecting natural resources, encouraging green growth and changing the way a person lives, works and plays.
The organization has now made the Sustainable Sandhills Certified Green Business program available in Moore County. Green businesses reduce waste, promote recycling, become energy and water efficient, purchase eco-friendly products and educate employees and customers about the multiple benefits of a sustainable community.
Sustainable Sandhills Community Action Team (CAT) meetings are a forum for people with green ideas to form networks, identify projects and take positive action to improve their communities. Current projects include: greening local schools, creating new trails for recreation, weatherizing low income housing, recycling, urban farming and more. The organization has scheduled several Moore County CAT meetings for May 19, July 21 and Sept. 15. Each of the three meetings will be held at the Dempsey Student Center, Clement Dining Hall on the campus of Sandhills Community College, and each session will run from 6:30 p.m. until 8 p.m.
