EARTH DAY FESTIVAL VENDOR PROFILE: Sustainable Westchester.
Sustainable Westchester is the expression of your local governments' determination to turn our environmental challenges into opportunities to improve the quality of life, economy and future prospects of the citizens of the county. It brings grassroots and municipal forces together to achieve concrete change. Sustainable Westchester is a collaboration of County communities empowering sustainability initiatives and sharing resources, tools, and incentives for healthy, vibrant towns, villages, neighborhoods including aggregated approaches to renewable energy and electric vehicle promotion, sustainable landscaping, waste reduction, and recycling. SW will present opportunities for event-goers to take constructive action via our portfolio of energy/waste & dollar-saving programming, including: • HeatSmart Westchester– teaming with @energizeny and with the support of the NYSERDA, SW is helping to introduce the benefits of heat pump technology to a wider audience; • Westchester Power – first in NY “Community Choice Aggregation” program supplying 100% renewable energy to over 75,000 residents/small businesses in the county; • Community solar – helping more people access the benefits of solar power, even if they can’t install panels on their own roof;
• Electric vehicles – The SW clean transportation program has helped municipalities, businesses and residents to drive and charge electric by negotiating bulk discounts, facilitating grants and running promotions; • ZeroWasteWestchester – programming to reduce our material footprint; with the launch of the common “Recollect” platform, residents in participating communities will know where and when to dispose of items to avoid the landfill.
Sustainable Westchester is building a one-stop website ZeroWasteWestchester.org which will serve residents, municipal officials and environmental champions. .
