Help us launch Green Guides to make OPRF Greener, Healthier and more Resilient!
By Sally Stovall
The Green Guides network is being initiated in response to the need to engage people in every neighborhood. To learn more about Green Guides join us at the Oak Park Main Library, 834 Lake St., 2nd floor small meeting room, for a Green Guides meet-up on either of the following dates:
10 a.m. Thursday, Jan. 28 --OR-- 7 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 2nd
We'll share our ideas and get your ideas on how to move the needle on sustainability goals:
Reduce, reuse and recycle 50% of our waste
Conserve water and keep it clean
Support our eco-systems with native plants
Meet more of our food needs from local, sustainable growers (including ourselves!)
Transition to renewable and efficient energy
Small changes can make a big impact when we act together!
Be part of the achieving the PlanItGreen Sustainability Plan Goals. Green Guides are not expected to be experts, just to have a willingness to help make it easier for neighbors to do the things they want to do. Start a conversation, inspire an action, connect neighbors to resources.
See you at the Green Guides Kickoff Event for refreshments, idea-sharing and conversation!
