The Bay Village Green Team wants YOU!
The Bay Village Green Team wants you! The advisory board of the Green Team is looking for members who are passionate about the environment and how to help Bay Village continue to take steps toward being more sustainable.
We host public meetings quarterly to talk about environmental issues and opportunities in Bay Village and how the Green Team may be able to help set and achieve goals. Residents are invited to come to learn about what we are doing and to offer suggestions and concerns.
Some of our accomplishments in recent years are: we helped bring residential public composting to Bay Village, we promote sustainability at Bay Days, we inform residents about how and what to recycle, we talk with city council members about sustainability issues in the city.
We secured grant funding from the Bay Village Foundation to install a water bottle filling station at Cahoon Park so that residents can fill their own bottles instead of bringing plastic single-use bottles to the park.
We talked with city council members about offering a renewable option for the electric aggregate – which we now have! – and we inform and guide residents about how to make the switch (it’s super simple!).
We work with city residents on issues that they are concerned about. We are a fun group of committed citizens who want to help make positive changes right here in our own city.
If you are interested in joining us, please reach out to Patrick McGannon at firstname.lastname@example.org. Oh, and don’t forget to follow us on Facebook! We would love to have you join us!
