There will be staff and materials available for you to learn more about how to reduce your plastic use, how to be more energy efficient in the office and at home and ways to contribute to the County’s Sustainability efforts. And thanks to the generosity of the Shedd Aquarium, and their #SheddtheStraw campaign, we will have a drawing for free tickets to the Shedd for all of those who sign a pledge to reduce their plastic use.
A Message from the President
I believe that Cook County should be a world-class model of sustainability. We are working not only to boost sustainability practices throughout County government, but also to join forces with local governments, nonprofits and business, to accomplish more than we could separately in making each of Cook County’s communities sustainable. To further this work, I appointed Deborah Stone as the County’s first Chief Sustainability Officer, and as Director of the Department of Environmental Control. I also recognize that Cook County needs to share ideas and collaborate with a diverse group of community leaders and sustainability experts. In March 2012, I appointed the Cook County Sustainability Advisory Council to help lift our vision higher and give us access to best practices. You can meet the Council members and read more about their mission in the “Advisory Council” section of this website. Toni Preckwinkle,Cook County Board President
