Welcome to Green Concord

Green Concord was founded in 2007 by a group of local businesses committed to fostering a greener way of doing business and creating a truly sustainable local economy. Although the group is not currently active, the past members are proud to have been able to initiate several important programs in the Concord, NH area.

Thank you for your interest in the environment. If you have any questions or need any advice, please contact info@greenconcord.org.

Recycling

We brought on-street recycling to Main Street and were involved in the introduction of commercial single-stream recycling in the downtown area. Our distinctive recycling bins were featured at many local events; we also provided recycling facilities at the YMCA and Concord High School. Our bins are still available, so if you are interested in reducing waste and encouraging recycling at an event, please email info@greenconcord.org.

Rain Barrels

Green Concord supported an initiative of NH Lakes to promote awareness of polluted water run-off in local schools. Following the success of the NH Lakes program, Green Concord began constructing rain barrels and selling them at a discounted rate to continue raising funds for NH Lakes.

Green Living Series

In collaboration with Red River Theatres, Green Concord organized the screening of over 30 movies highlighting important environmental and social justice issues. Screenings typically included one night offering a post-film discussion with a panel of experts.
