Goal of the Ten Towns · Ten Actions Toolkit

The Ten Towns Ten Actions Toolkit is a menu of concrete actions, ready-made templates, and technical support started by ten volunteers — many of whom have already been successful in effecting change in their communities and all willing to help others rethink plastic. The goal of the Toolkit is to inspire and guide community leaders, catalysts, champions, and others in accomplishing actions toward plastic waste reduction and zero waste strategies, and also to track and celebrate the accomplishments publicly through regular, coordinated media announcements and events.

For some history, see our Ten Towns Toolkit Today Newsletters.
