Sustainable Putnam

We're committed to creating a greener Putnam.

Sustainable Putnam is a nonprofit organization working to reduce emissions, protect the environment, and create a cleaner home for all of us in Putnam County, NY.

We're taking our first steps...

We are your neighbors, your friends, and your fellow citizens. And we are setting out on a journey to protect our county, our homes, our neighborhoods, and our businesses and make them thrive.

Climate change is a reality, and if we continue on the current path, many of us won’t fare very well. And our children and grandchildren will fare much worse.

That’s why we’ve formed Sustainable Putnam.
We have the solutions to reverse global warming and decrease the devastating impacts of the climate crisis. And make our communities better places to live. But we have to work together. And we have to act now.
