5 Tips for a Sustainable Lifestyle in Boston
NIB Leadership Team Career Summit Co-Chair and sustainable living guru Alana Gerson is a pro at finding ways to live sustainably in her surroundings. She is our go-to on the team for finding solutions to our everyday sustainability needs, so we have asked her to give 5 of her best tips for Boston, below! Watch our website and social media for an in-depth blog with more Boston sustainable living ideas from Alana later this month.
2. Utilize the City of Boston’s Project Oscar
to compost your food scraps in one of 6 community bins (East Boston, North End, Brighton, Dorchester, Jamaica Plain and City Hall Plaza). Review the list of acceptable items
and fill out the composting quiz
to test your knowledge.
3. Find local businesses and events doing good things for people and the planet with the DoneGood
website and app.
4. Recycle outdated electronics and appliances at BestBuy
5. Looking for a gift for a sustainable friend (or a treat for yourself!) that doesn’t sacrifice your values? Shop at Follain
(locations in Beacon Hill and South End) for clean beauty products (for men too!).
