In this week’s segment of GRTV’s NPO Showcase Bill Wood, Executive Director of the West Michigan Environmental Action Council (WMEAC) discusses some of the programs and services WMEAC is involved with, and offers some tips for community members hoping to make an environmental impact from their home. 

Through energy programs, water programs, and environmental justice, WMEAC equips community members of West Michigan with the tools and information they need to make conscious decisions about their environmental impact. WMEAC offers a variety of ways for community members to get involved whether it is volunteering for one of their environmental cleanup days, or contributing to WMEAC by becoming a member.

WMEAC coordinates events for community members to share ideas or network, and provides training and information on ways households can make an impact through eco-friendly choices. They also coordinate with individuals and legal teams to help influence legislation in Lansing to support Michigan's environmental quality. WMEAC has a lot of different events throughout the summer all across the state for those wishing to get involved.

Check back next Wednesday for a new segment of GRTV’s NPO Showcase, featuring the West Michigan Center for Arts and Technology.

NPO Showcase is just one of the many ways that the Community Media Center serves the nonprofit community.
