“Middletown Green Business Initiative”

for Jonah Center for Earth and Art

by Laura Masulis, Tanya Moss, Miller Nuttle, and Paolo Speirn


This project aimed to facilitate environmentally responsible business practices in Middletown. A group of four Wesleyan students was commissioned by the Jonah Center for Earth and Art to complete this project as part of the Community Research Seminar class.  The student researchers interviewed Middletown business owners and environmental leaders to develop a checklist of green business practices.  Based on feedback from businesses, the research group expanded the project to create a comprehensive Middletown Green Business Initiative.
