GreeningRozzie is a volunteer, nonprofit community organization in Roslindale, Massachusetts.
Our mission is to make Roslindale a greener, more sustainable, and more cohesive community by working together to promote and implement grassroots projects and activities.
We work in these areas:

Local Food and Gardens – increase home and community gardens and composting; strengthen local farms and markets; promote local food preservation
Healthy Homes – increase use of green products; reduce environmental hazards and use of toxic products; improve indoor air quality
Energy Efficiency – increase energy efficiency and alternative energy sources in homes, businesses, organizations and government offices; reduce our 1990 carbon emissions levels by 25% by 2020
Efficient Transportation – increase walking, biking, ride-sharing, and public transit; reduce car use; promote more accessible and efficient transportation systems
Waste Reduction – increase composting, recycling and reuse; reduce packaging, trash, litter, and consumption; promote barter and exchange programs
Water Conservation – increase water re-use and recycling, including rain barrels; promote water run-off management
Information and Advocacy – increase environmental awareness and involvement of residents, schools, businesses, organizations and neighborhood associations; measure energy use, recycling and other relevant sustainable and unsustainable activities
We're a community that cares about the people who live here, the space we live in, the larger city of Boston, and the future we create day by day. Together we can plan our future by improving our living space and the way we live so people can play, work and learn together in an environment that is healthy for individuals, families and the community.
We seek to include everyone who lives, works and cares about Roslindale and to draw on its amazing diversity of talents and backgrounds for ideas, skills, commitment and effort to make it a sustainable, green community. We will seek to build momentum through innovation, partnering with others and welcoming new ideas and new participants.
