March is just around the corner and since 2018, for Wilton Go Green, that has meant preparing for the annual Zero Waste Faire & Sustainable Living Expo. The plans for the 2020 event had grown substantially and were going to offer exciting changes and updates, but COVID-19 forced the cancellation of the in-person event both last year and this present one.
Even with the event canceled, however, that doesn’t mean the need to keep sustainability and environmental awareness has dissipated at all.
“As we hope to eventually return to our in-person Zero Waste Faire & Sustainable Living Expo in the future, it was important for Wilton Go Green to put together a program during the month of March to keep our presence at this time of year on people’s minds” said Wilton Go Green President Tammy Thornton.
So for 2021, in lieu of the in-person expo, Wilton Go Green is offering a “Make Your March Green!” sustainable living series.
“Our Wilton Go Green committee members have been working hard the past few months to organize our speakers and events, along with their regular committee work, for Make Your March Green and I could not be more grateful for their time and dedication,” Thornton said.
She added that the events are not Wilton-centric and “folks from anywhere can and should tune in for a great lineup of speakers and topics.”
Make Your March Green events bring together a combination of webinars, Facebook Live events and even a partnership with Woodcock Nature Center to have an in-person upcycled craft event.
In addition to the Woodcock event, webinars and Facebook live events include topics such as Being Part of Nature, Solving the Problem of Food Waste, Sustainable Tips for Yards and Gardens, Rethinking Disposables in Schools, and Helping Towns Support Electronic Vehicle Readiness.

Wilton Go Green offers these events free of charge. Instead of a fee, the non-profit is asking participants to consider a donation to allow the group to continue to do its work in Wilton and the surrounding area.
