Patch Picks of the week.
This week's Patch Picks asked what organizations in Wellesley are the greenest - meaning most environmentally friendly. Here are the picks:
The Schools – Town wide, the schools are known for recycling. In previous years, the schools had a system in which students from every grade participated in sorting waste products for proper recycling. (The schools this year outsourced their recycling services to a company which uses a “single stream” system, which a group of seniors lobbied against at the end of the academic year.)
The Town – The town, in conjunction with the Sustainable Energy Committee, is in the process of cutting down Wellesley’s carbon footprint significantly by 2013.
Mass Hort – Wellesley has arguably the “greenest” area right in its backyard: The Massachusetts Horticultural Society of course.
The RDF - Wellesley's Recycling and Disposal Facility is an environmentalist's paradise. It's at an easy-to-find location with easy-to-use recycling stations.
