Sustainable Wellesley survey results show residents need plenty of help getting greener

The Sustainable Wellesley volunteer outfit has released results of its recent survey to find out just how green residents are. The findings, based on responses from fewer than 50 people, are that many residents have taken relatively easy steps, such as consolidating car trips and changing out incandescent light bulbs.

Respondents seem unlikely to shorten showers to under 5 minutes, calculate their carbon footprint, bike more or take public transportation more frequently. They indicated a reluctance to tighten air leaks and better insulate their homes, and it’s topics such as these that Sustainable Wellesley plans to address in future programs.
