Office of Sustainability Shares Sustainable Initiatives on Pinterest!

Posted on October 3, 2017 at 10:25 AM by Communications Department

Newport News is always working to inform the public of the great things happening throughout the city.  Recently, the Newport News Green Team joined the social network Pinterest. Pinterest allows users to visually share and discover new interests by posting (known as 'pinning') images or videos to their own boards (a collection of 'pins’) or to the boards of other users, as well as browsing what other users have pinned. The page combines general information on sustainability along with Newport News specific information about events and businesses that promote sustainability. NN Green Pinterest boards include sustainable living, Newport News: A Sustainable Community, and Going Green for Kids. 10-3 green

NN Green is a public awareness campaign aimed at engaging the community, promoting successes, and inspiring simple green practices citizens can do at home, work, or play to make Newport News a sustainable community.
