Great Resources You Can Use

The EcoTeam concept is pretty simple.  You meet, you discuss, you take action.  See the 2013 Ecoteam Celebration report here.

The primary guide for our EcoTeams groups is the Green Living Handbook: A 6-Step Program to Create an Environmentally Sustainable Lifestyle, by David Gershon.  You can get the Green Living Handbook at the library, borrow from us, or purchase your own online.  The Leon County Extension also has copies of the Green Living Handbook that can be loaned to EcoTeams. Contact Tom Taylor ( for more information.


Here is a handout that can be printed out and used to recruit members to your team.

The four core recommended modules are Waste, Water, Energy, and Transportation.  These are the first four sections of the Green Living Handbook.  Check back often to this site for links and videos designed to guide and supplement each of these discussion areas.
