We are interested in continuing to build a relationship with local businesses interested in supporting education locally. As a small non-profit organization based in Wilmington, MA our mission is to provide future and current scientists, educators and citizens with the tools to teach and learn about green chemistry in order to create a sustainable future. Green chemistry is a pro-active approach to pollution prevention, which aims to change the nature of the chemistry we use and how we create products. Green chemistry is the science of designing materials and products in a more sustainable way that minimizes waste, maximizes efficiency, and relies on renewable resources.
Our work consists of K-12 and college outreach, curriculum development, and professional development for educators. We believe it is crucial to develop pipeline of opportunities for students to get excited and inspired to create solutions to environmental problems. It is our belief that green chemistry education is key to creating a sustainable future. Not only is it a field that offers enormous environmental benefits but also tremendous economic opportunities as well.
On May 1, 2013 we will be hosting our first annual fundraising event: Greening the Classroom. Attendees will have the opportunity to meet with our college green chemistry ambassadors, enjoy our science inspired art show as well as tour the state of the art Warner Babcock Institute for Green Chemistry. We are seeking donations for our silent auction. Your in-kind donation of merchandise or a gift certificate will help us to generate funds that will go directly to green chemistry education.
Just $100 helps defer the cost of supplies for us to host a single classroom of students on a field trip. $500 covers the costs associated with traveling to a local high school and providing a several classrooms with a hands-on green chemistry lab experience. $1500 pays for one teacher to participate in a 3-day professional development workshop that will in turn expose hundreds of students to green chemistry over the course of only a few years. If you are interested in sponsoring a field trip, classroom visit or educator training course we can happily process that donation as well.
Thank you in advance for your consideration, we greatly appreciate your support.

Networking Success Story – Amy Pozerski
I recently joined my husband, Scott to run our Junk King junk removal franchise together. When I left my full time job in Construction Management, I didn’t know a whole lot about networking. Scott was part of a BNI networking group and while he occasionally mentioned to me what he was doing and what was involved with the networking, I never really paid close attention.
Since we no longer had an extra income coming in each month, I realized one of the first things I would have to focus on working for the company was bringing in more jobs. My first experience with networking was attending a Friends of Kevin event back in November 2012. I found myself enjoying the experience of meeting so many new people and spreading the word about our company. I had also decided I was going to join a BNI group but wasn’t sure which chapter so I started to visit different chapters in the area. Over the course of about 3 weeks, I had attended 6 or 7 BNI chapter meetings – yes, this was a lot of days getting up early but if I was going to be serious about building our business I was willing to get up early however many days it took.
I finally settled on joining the BNI group in Winchester, MA. I complimented that membership by belonging to the Greater Lowell Chamber of Commerce, Merrimack Valley Chamber, and Friends of Kevin. My current goal for networking is to attend 1 or 2 events a week in addition to my BNI meeting that is held every Tuesday.
Overall, networking has done wonders for our business, not only doing jobs directly for the people we meet, but those people referring/recommending us to others. In terms of advertising costs, every customer we get through a referral or a repeat customer is substantially cheaper to obtain than using direct mail or other advertising avenues.
Besides getting more business, my favorite part about networking is all the amazing people I’ve met and the friendships I’ve been able to build. I’ve had the opportunity to speak to so many successful business owners and learn from their experiences. It’s for these reasons that I feel networking is an indispensable part of our business and personal growth plan as well as reaching the goals we set.
