Welcome to SustainableTwinPorts.org  

  

Community - Environment – Economy – We believe everyone in the twin ports of Duluth, MN and Superior, WI values the health of all three.  Sustainable Twin Ports has decided to move from belief to action by teaching our neighbors, businesses and public entities how to take meaningful steps toward sustainability.

Sustainable Twin Ports is dedicated to furthering economic, environmental & social sustainability in the Twin Ports and western Lake Superior region through education, networking and action.

We all make hundreds of decisions every day, all day long.  While most of us consider the economic side, few stop long enough to consider the effects of those decisions on the Environment, or on other People.  We’ll show you a method for making those decisions through the 'lens' of sustainability principles, based on The Natural Step framework.

By working together, we can create transformational change toward a healthier community, a healthier environment and a healthier bottom line.

What is "Sustainability"?

"Development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs."
~ Brundtland Commission Report, 1987

"A state in which society does not systematically undermine natural or social systems within the biosphere."  ~ The Natural Step USA
