I'm Dani Glaser, the founder of Green Team Spirit. I help organizations start voluntary green teams where members work together to learn about sustainability (aka "going green) and take actions that will better their organization, the planet and themselves. This approach really works! People feel great about working as a team toward something that's so important to their lives. Together they are saving energy, reducing waste, creating a healthier environment, saving money and having fun!
A great local example is the Town of Cortlandt Green Team, started in May 2009. With the support of Supervisor Linda Puglisi and Town Board members, staff from all departments have been working together to make town operations and the local community greener. You can learn more by visiting www.RenewCortlandt.org.
Help build our community Green Team!
I hear about green actions going on all over our community. Can you only imagine the impact we'd make if we all worked together? The goal of this blog is to:
1. Identify the people and groups in our community working toward sustainability (green projects).
2. Pool our efforts on a community Green Team.
2. Share your green stories and successes on this blog with others in the community.
So tell me, what efforts/actions toward sustainability are going on in our schools, businesses, governments, non-profits, congregations, athletic teams and neighborhood groups? Are you building a community garden? Is your business reducing paper and recycling more? Are students part of a green team at school? Simply knowing what our community is up to is a great start!
You can post your comments on this blog for everyone to see or email your information to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Go Green Team!
