Mission: To organize, educate, and act on a local level in support of our planet.
Purpose: The Planeteers of Southern Maine is a grassroots effort dedicated to creating a sustainable future for the planet and more specifically for southern Maine. Join us. We encourage, coordinate, and take action on climate change, clean oceans, and other environmental issues. Our founding members include individuals serving on local governing bodies along with citizen activists, and we collaborate with environmental and educational groups within the state. We have established an annual Earth Day event; and we seek to expand local communities’ use of alternative energies, to increase energy conservation, to reduce solid waste, to engage local municipalities and businesses in developing sustainability plans, and to engage area students in sustainability projects.
