Summit Seeks To Unite Community In Push For Sustainable Business Practices

HARWICH – CARE (Creating a Responsible Environment) for the Cape & Islands is teaming up with the Center for Coastal Studies and the Cape Cod Anti-Litter Coalition to host a community summit aimed at promoting sustainable practices on November 9 at the 204 Cultural Arts Municipal Building in Harwich from 8:30 am to 2 pm.

The summit will include “Success Stories” a panel of local businesses sharing their experiences in reducing plastic waste, with Katy Acheson of the Cape Cod Canal Chamber acting as moderator, as well as presentations on resources available to help businesses transition to eco-friendly practices.

A networking lunch will be held, featuring a silent auction of local products and experiences.
