ECO Iowa City
Apparently, an organization has been started in Iowa City very recently that will help promote and improve environmental sustainability here in town. I just found out about it on Facebook, and I’m already extremely excited about it! It’s being managed by the Iowa City Public Library & the City of Iowa City Public Works Division and funded by the International City /County Management Association, and they’ll be focusing on urban composting & local food, energy conservation, urban stormwater management, and smart waste disposal. Some of the services they’ll be offering here in town will be:
- seed and start give-a-ways
- coupons for free Iowa City Community Compost
- free compact fluorescent bulbs and winterizing kits
- mini-grants for compost bins and rain barrels (apparently, they’ll be selling these at the Iowa City Habitat for Humanity ReStore)
- free smart waste disposal events
