A Local Approach



Content is provided by Marc Grant located at 103 Kristin Drive Extension, Chelmsford 01824.

I'm an Environmental Engineer living and working in Chelmsford. My volunteer activities in the sustainability realm have included the Town's Recycling Committee, the Conservation Commission, a task force that studied solid waste issues, in 2013 the "solar coach" for Solarize Chelmsford, and in 2014-2015 the community lead for Chelmsford Saves.

The internet can be a confusing tangle of information. My goal is to make it easy for residents to take steps to allow the local economy, environment, and their families to flourish sustainably. These steps focus on our specific circumstances in Chelmsford and the resources available to us, thus the local name.

The Start Here page contains links to some local groups that I follow, and some "local" websites in nearby towns that served as inspiration for this one. I believe we should Think Global and Act Local, and these are some of the Global groups, or at least beyond-Chelmsford groups, that I follow:

350 Mass, Audubon, Citizens Climate LobbyGRACEMassCEC, Mass Save, UCSXerces.

Some Podcasts related to sustainability that I listen to:

Citizens Climate Lobby, Living on Earth, MCAN, The Energy Gang
