NCJW Green


NCJW Green is a an NCJW | MI committee devoted to educating ourselves, our NCJW supporters 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 “Refuse, Reduce, Reuse, Reimagine and Recycle RIGHT” 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.

We encourage our community to participate in the worldwide challenge called Plastic-Free July. Click HERE to view information about these efforts.

Say No to Plastic Straws – Refusing plastic straws in restaurants is one way to make a difference in ending the glut of single-use plastics. If you would like to help, spread the word at your favorite restaurants. CLICK HERE to download a letter that you can take to the places you frequent.

Plastic Bags Make Plastic Mats (PBPM) – This project is now complete. Our volunteers successfully created and donated 55 sleeping mats made from used plastic bags! These mats were given to area agencies who distributed them to people experiencing homelessness.

Thank you to all the volunteers for their help and participation!
