About us

The Sustainable Sharon Coalition is a group of citizens working towards a vision of Sharon as a leading sustainable community.

To this end we work with neighbors, elected officials, and town staff to promote measures that conserve and sustain our community’s use of natural & man made resources in order to take part in the global effort to protect our planet.

We are a 501(c)3 non-profit with all our expenses going to things like educational outreach materials, website fees, room rentals, and misc. supplies.  Donations are tax deductible.
