NCJW Green


NCJW Green is a an NCJW | MI committee devoted to educating ourselves, our NCJW members and the community about global warming and the steps each of us can take to stop it and create a planet that is sustainable for our children, grandchildren and the generations beyond.
We embrace the “Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle” philosophy and our committee has been part of a world-wide initiative to end single-use plastics. One of our main initiatives is to educate the community to SAY NO TO PLASTICS and provide alternative options for many household items that are normally in plastic containers

Initiatives & Projects:

Say No to Plastic Straws – We have begun a letter writing campaign to restaurants, cafes and coffee shops to encourage them to stop using plastic straws. CLICK HERE to download a letter that you can take to the places you frequent.

Plastic Bags Make Plastic Mats – (PBPM) is an NCJW | MI Green subcommittee, committed to making sleeping mats from plastic bags for those experiencing homelessness. These mats provide a dry, easily cleaned and comfortable sleeping surface. At the same time, they offer a partial solution to the plastic pollution problem.
