Mission: The Environmental Committee strives to improve air, water, soil, and habitat quality through neighborhood and surrounding community engagement.
How we fulfill the mission: The Committee is formatted to receive project ideas from members and support their initiatives. We work together as soundboards for expanding ideas, inspire members to champion and take ownership of their project, and support the directives to accomplish these goals.
Greenway Garden: Building biodiversity in the neighborhood through the restoration of native habitat along the Greenway in collaboration with Elan.
Low Salt Diet for Minneapolis Campaign: Encouraging and educating local businesses on best practices for snow and ice removal to reduce salination of our Chain of Lakes and Minnehaha Watershed District.
Organics Recycling Program: The intent of the program is to provide an organics recycling option for renters of large (5+units) residential buildings, who often do not have access to such services through their building.
Metro Transit's Ridematch program:Ridematch is a carpooling program that will link you up with others who live or work near you. Carpooling is a great way to help cut down on carbon emissions while also saving yourself money.
Future Projects: Come to an environmental meeting and share your idea!
Next Meeting: Tuesday, March 10th 6:30-8pm 2744 Lyndale Ave S Agenda: TBA
