Community Development Partnership Hosts “Cape & Islands Green” Workshop

On Tuesday, October 24 the Community Development Partnership will be offering a 2 hour session that will focus on how to reduce energy costs and conserve resources, including how “being green” is good for the bottom line.

This workshop will educate and encourage you to engage in sustainable business practices to reduce your business’s impact on the natural environment. Topics include: 

  • Solid waste minimization
  • Water and energy conservation
  • How to market a green business 

We partner with the Cape Light Compact to share their expertise about how to reduce energy consumption. The workshop will also layout steps to take to become Cape & Islands Green verified. 

After the workshop, our professional team is also available to guide you through the process of becoming Cape & Islands Green verified. Once your business is verified, you will have the opportunity to market your business using the Cape & Islands Green brand which appeals to energy conscious consumers.  

Join us on Tuesday, October 24 from 5:00-7:00 at the CDP offices at 3 Main Street Mercantile in Eastham.

This workshop is part of our ongoing series of Business Development offerings.

To register, please contact Pam Anderson at [email protected] or call 508-240-7873 x18.


The Community Development Partnership supports an array of programs that strengthen our Lower Cape community, providing greater opportunities for all who live here to thrive.

Our work starts with creating affordable homes—so essential to a healthy economy, but a real challenge in communities like ours where seasonal and vacation dynamics drive the market beyond the reach of many who live and work locally all year round.

We also work to launch entrepreneurs and strengthen local businesses. We believe a vibrant future depends on sustaining traditional industries and inspiring new ones—especially when they’re based on renewable natural resources such as fishing, farming, art and hospitality.

In all that we do, we aim to protect the natural environment around us—preserving the character and sustaining the future of this special place we call home.
