The Circular Evanston Working Group includes City staff, long-time business and non-profit leaders in reuse, recycling, composting, repair, and sharing, and other citizens who are passionate about an Evanston that can move beyond waste to create circular systems and equitable outcomes.
To develop a Circular Evanston Roadmap, we are reaching out—through community events, conversations with businesses and institutions, and by engaging regional collaborators.
If you would like to join the Working Group, please email Tom Mulhern. See below for an overview of our progress toward the Roadmap.
Seeking people to collect and distribute reusable bags at Evanston's Farmer's Markets! Could it be you? This is a program Wilmette has already implemented. We could too. Read more below and contact us if you have time and energy to lead this.
We are looking for people to lead an initiative to bring (and return) reusable bags at Farmer's Markets in Evanston this season. Volunteer to staff a table and drum up support, so we can reduce plastic waste and encourage.
