Sustainable Wakefield was formed in 2017 to successfully rally support for a plastic bag reduction bylaw proposed to Town Meeting. Since then, we have worked on a number of initiatives including:
Renewable Energy - helping homeowners navigate the rooftop solar process and encouraging the WMGLD to decarbonize the fuel mix;
Reduced Waste - organized clean ups, pushed for increased composting and recycling options, and stronger plastic and Styrofoam limits;
Municipal Action - Successfully advocated for the creation of an official town committee dedicated to environmental sustainability;
Awareness Raising - Participated in and organized community events to raise awareness about sustainability opportunities.
We are now actively working on growing our network of Wakefield residents interested in working on sustainability and climate efforts. Please join our mailing list to stay apprised of our work and to help build a Sustainable Wakefield.
