WILTON, Conn. Wiltons Go Green environmental group is holding its annual meeting Wednesday at 6 p.m. in the towns historic Cannon Grange, 25 Cannon Road.
The meeting is open to the public.
Wilton Go Green is a nonprofit group created by a group of citizens in 2010 eager to engage the community of Wilton in sustainable initiatives, according to its website .
We came together in the fall of 2009 as a committee of the Wilton Energy Commission charged with putting on the first Wilton Go Green Festival (in 2010), the website says.
The group has become a permanent organization.
Sharing a mutual passion for conservation and sustainability, we wanted to create a fun, informative day for people to learn about the simple steps they can take to make better use of energy, money and our scarce resources, according to the Go Green website.
We found that many organizations in and around our town were eager to participate from non-profits and corporations, to pre-schools and faith communities. With over 80 exhibitors, 20 workshops and more than 1,000 attendees, the first festival was a huge success, said Go Green President Becky Bunnell.
The group of volunteers spun off from the Wilton Energy Commission to establish Wilton Go Green Inc. now has a long-term vision.
Our goal is to develop a wide range of sustainable initiatives in cooperation with the town and other area nonprofits, said Bunnell.
