Canton Residents for a Sustainable, Equitable Future
Canton Residents for a Sustainable, Equitable Future (CR4SEF) - or "Sustainable Canton," is a welcoming group determined to halt the rapidly evolving climate crisis and mitigate its effects by promoting public engagement through education and thoughtful action.
We stand in support of frontline communities and those most heavily impacted by climate change. We seek collaboration with local, state, and national efforts to rapidly transition to a renewable, resilient and equitable society and economy that protects a livable environment.
Canton residents of all ages are encouraged to "act locally," to help halt the climate crisis. We have an array of projects at any given time.

PLASTIC BAG REDUCTION
On May 15th at Town Meeting, Canton became the 112th Massachusetts town to pass a plastic bag reduction by-law that helps mitigate climate change and pollution. Now more than 50% of the state's population has banned single-use plastic bags at the point of sale.
GAS PIPELINE OPPOSITION
In 2017, our group was instrumental in having the Board of Selectmen Resolution prohibiting a high-pressure gas pipeline through Canton (and other new gas infrastructure).
