PURPOSE To facilitate information and education of new green practices and products to and for our members and the public.

WHO ARE WE? A group of local citizens working to inspire individuals and organizations – both within and outside City government – to take actions and implement polices that help make Albion a model of health and ecologically sustainable living. A group of local residents working with City government, business groups, nonprofit organizations, and other partners to protect and enhance Albion’s distinctive environmental quality and livability.

SPECIAL INTERESTS To promote green building by increasing public and professional knowledge and awareness of the benefits of green construction practices. To provide recommendations and encouragement to the City of Albion in the implementation of a local action plan for climate protection and sustainability that is crafted to be forward thinking and targeted to the unique climate and circumstances of Greater Albion.

Together we can make a difference by implementing big ideas and small changes in the way we interact with our environment.  With visionary leadership, persistence, and a strong message, this new way of life can become second nature to us all.
