This Saturday, April 23, Join the Rally for Climate & Community Justice to Stop the West Roxbury Lateral Pipeline, 9 am to noon

Draper Playground, 5279 Washington St, West Roxbury

Last September, 100 members of Sustainable Wellesley bussed down to New York City for the People’s Climate March — now we have a chance to march for climate justice right here in our own greater Boston community! This Saturday — just a few miles away in West Roxbury — folks will be marching against a dangerous and unnecessary fracked gas pipeline that is being built right through their residential neighborhood! All are welcome, whether you have marched before or never before!

We are carpooling from the UU Wellesley parking lot (309 Washington St.) —departing at 8:30 am sharp, returning at noon.

The Town of Wellesley is launching POWER TO $AVE, an energy savings program

The goal is to recruit at least 400 Wellesley homeowners to take advantage of a no-cost home energy assessment.  Following the recommendations of this assessment provides many benefits: 

  • Reduce your reliance on fossil fuels like oil and gas
  • Reduce your utility bills
  • Reduce harmful emissions
  • In many cases, improve the comfort of your home
  • Free light bulbs and for those eligible, rebates, incentives and/or tax credits
  • Create clean energy jobs in our local economy

This is a community-based effort to reduce Wellesley’s carbon footprint that is being coordinated by the Town’s Sustainable Energy Committee and underwritten by the Wellesley Municipal Light Plant and National Grid.

Get a free assessment for your home.
