SPRINGVILLE – Green Springville is the new name of the former Springville Sustainability Initiative. The group was recently formed to facilitate sustainability efforts and promote green initiatives in the Springville community.
“As a group, we wanted the name to reflect the simple vision of a greener community,” said co-founder Reed Braman. “We feel that this new name captures the essence of our mission and are looking forward to working with the community.”
Green Springville took to the community to share its message, attending Springville-Griffith Institute’s Homecoming activities. With a tent set up by the food stand, volunteers collected recyclable materials and hosted the “How Long Until It’s Gone?” game. The group is looking to partner with different organizations in the community to strengthen recycling programs.
This past Sunday, Green Springville held its inaugural Rail Trail Cleanup. A group of volunteers walked the Springville Rail Trail picking up garbage and enjoying the fall weather.
Building on the momentum of recent events, Green Springville will be hosting its next meeting on Oct. 11 at 7 p.m. at 23 Mechanic St., in the Encorus Building. Anyone interested in attending is welcome.
Green Springville is a non-profit organization dedicated to making Springville a sustainable place to live, work, shop and play. Green Springville focuses on projects that promote sustainable energy, environmental development, recreational facilities and economic opportunities.
