Milton, MA is located just outside Boston. It is a unique suburban community with close proximity to the city and surrounded by treasured open green spaces preserved both privately and publically, such as in the Blue HIlls Reservation (State DCR) and the Neponset River Watershed.
Sustainable Milton started in 2006. Since then, it has sponsored many local green events like town-wide spring "greenups," and promoted community sustainability from public educational programing in collaboration with Milton Public library and local schools. to solar energy installations, LED lighting, and energy retrofits on town buildings through Green Community grants (for which we helped Milton to certify in 2010), and much more.
We aim to create a community that acts to preserve our ecosystem as a whole. We raise awareness, educate and motivate residents, town government and businesses to reduce waste of all forms and create a healthy, vibrant future for all.

Our mission is to provide communities with the tools and resources to motivate and support their residents, businesses and non-profits in a wide array of actions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and prepare for a changing climate. We leverage the collective expertise, experience and buying power of multiple towns, cities and local organizations by collaborating with them on tools, strategies, and resources. This community web platform is one example of our work. For more information go to www.massenergize.org.
