GIVING TUESDAY 2020 - Dec. 2, 2020
While Sustainable Tallahassee has led tree planting efforts in the past, including 100 oaks several years ago at the J.R. Alford Greenway, Olivia’s donation sparked the desire to make this a recurring event. Thus was born Olivia’s Tree Fund. This year we raised $1,000 that will be used to match donations to this fund. Its focus will be on tree planting, habitat restoration, and similar beautification projects in the Tallahassee area.
NEW MISSION AND VISION STATEMENTS
Since its founding over a decade ago, Sustainable Tallahassee has been a leading voice for progress in our community. As we look ahead to a vastly different world, Sustainable Tallahassee’s Board of Directors has crafted new and powerful mission and vision statements that will guide our organization into the future. Learn more about our new mission and vision from President Mike Mitchell’s announcement letter.

Our Rags2Bags Team is Making Face Masks
Here's how you can make face masks while socially distancing in your own home:
If you have used T-shirts, they are needed to make liners for Face Masks. The T-shirt fabric should be freshly washed and cut into 6" x 9" rectangles and batched into sets of ten. Omit any fabric that has printing on it.
The pick-up / drop-off time and place is:
Here are two videos that will guide you through the mask making process, created by Pam Doffek and Mike Mitchell:
We will distribute
