  • protect land and water resources
  • reduce materials consumption and increase materials re-use and recycling
  • support local and regional, sustainable food production and consumption
  • conserve and enhance habitat for native flora and fauna
  • reduce toxic materials in our air, water, soil, and materials stream

To these ends, Green Acton may educate and advocate for environmental safety and public health by:
