About Go Green Winnetka

 

The mission of Go Green Winnetka is to raise awareness regarding sustainability and inspire schools, governmental units, organizations, businesses, and individuals to take action targeting climate change, waste, and sustainable raw materials.

Go Green Winnetka works within Winnetka and in concert with other area Go Green groups to share best practices and problem-solve by hosting and participating in formal meetings, informal gatherings, discussions, presentations, movie screenings, book groups, yard tours, clean-ups, and public advocacy, among others.

They need volunteers to help with communications, public advocacy programs, composting at community events, cleanups, and environmental fairs. Find out how you can help here.
