Williston Residents, take note. Registration for the 2018 program (children born between August 2016-Aug 2018) ends Friday 8/31! If you or someone you know has a recent birth and is a Williston resident, they can register and receive a free, native, tree/shrub to plant at their home in Williston!
For July, Sustainable Williston’s social is rescheduled to Wednesday, July 11th at the Tap House starting at 7:15 (usually until 8:45). In addition to good company, we have a mission this week, to speak with the manager about taking the Straws Upon Request pledge. In many Williston restaurants, straws are given with drinks (including water) by default. This campaign changes the default to no straw, greatly reducing plastic waste. It isn’t a ban because straws can still be available if requested by the customer. This summer, Sustainable Williston will be working to convince at least 3 Williston restaurants to take the Straws Upon Request pledge. Who will be the first?!
Join us this Wednesday in our efforts to reduce plastic waste, starting with the Tap House. If you’ve never joined us before, just ask the Tap House host to direct you to the Sustainable Williston table.
Note: Due to inclement weather the event has been relocated to the Williston Federated Church. Park behind the church and enter from the back. RSVP here!
Sustainable Williston will hold our regular first Thursday meeting November 3rd, at 7:15 PM at the Dorothy Alling Library.
We’ll discuss the town plan, future social and outreach events, and more. Everyone who lives or works in Williston and is interested in sustainability and the environment is welcome.
Sustainable Williston will meet this Thursday at the Dorothy Alling Library (pending confirmation from library staff) to talk about the Town Plan, task forces, priorities for the fall, the upcoming Birth Tree celebration, our monthly contributions to the Williston Observer, planned events, and more. All Williston residents interested in sustainability or the environment are welcome. From this meeting, you can get involved in task forces like trees, water quality, energy and carbon footprint, transportation, light pollution, and more.
Nice! Good work, Luc!
