Sustainability

We’re committed to helping protect the environment.

Whether it’s working on the Forest Glen Climate Toolkit, making the Sauganash business district
bicycle-friendly or promoting energy efficiency, we’re here to help!

As the fiscal agent for the Climate Toolkit, we worked with the Field Museum to make the ideas of local scouts become reality.

 

Thanks to resources like a grant from Boeing Corporation, and access to the environmental experts at the Field Museum, coupled with the kids’ creativity and terrific local leadership, we achieved impressive results with water conservation, natural mosquito abatement and eco-friendly gardening.

More than 40 rain barrels were installed in local homes, businesses,
churches and schools to help conserve water and reduce flooding.
