Fall Updates


On November 2, City of Covington residents will elect two new city council members – one in the East Ward and one in the West Ward to take office in January.  Early voting starts next Tuesday, October 12.  To assist voters in making an informed choice, we reached out to all four candidates to ask questions and have a conversation about sustainability and climate action.  Read our blog post to find out why these questions are so critical now and to hear how each candidate responded.

Would You Consider Supporting Us?

Unlike most nonprofits, we don’t ask for money often.  Sustainable Newton is a grass-roots, all-volunteer organization focused on action, community engagement, and enabling change that matters today and for future generations.  But, especially during these pandemic-driven virtual times, it costs more to keep our programs vital, relevant, and successful. 

Please take a look at what we’ve accomplished so far, and considering chipping in a small amount to help us carry forward with an even more impactful 2021.
