Events & Projects

Sustainable Warwick members can be proud of a history of seeing a project through to completion and success.  Following our Guiding Objectives, we endeavor to continue to impact the community of Warwick and surrounding areas for many years to come.

Here are just a few examples:

Sustainable Sundays film and discussion series the third Sunday of the month at 1:30 at Wisner Library

 Sign up for a NYSERDA home energy assessment to save energy, save money, and make your home more comfortable. And once you’ve made the improvements, Energize Warwick gives $200 to the non-profit of your choice!

Take a look at how a community came together in an effort that ensures a ban on hydraulic fracturing in Warwick.  Truly a victory for all its citizens, now and in the future.

See the story about how small changes, such as reducing plastic bag use, can really make a big difference!

Our story on “The 10% Challenge” gives a view into the notable measures and reductions that were made within our community’s public spaces, such as town halls and libraries.  Read over the detailed explanation in four major areas in which you, too, can make a ten-percent reduction in energy use in your home or business.

The Warwick Trees Initiative is a great story about turning the ruins of a natural disaster into a positive, productive and conscientious effort.
