Portland Sustainability

March 24 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Join us via zoom for a discussion with volunteers and staff of WindowDressers about their program to provide community members with low-cost, energy-efficient window inserts.

Warm Your Neighbors And Yourselves with WindowDressers Insulating Window Inserts.

Did you know that 30% of home heat loss is through windows and doors? Cold windows lead to higher heating bills, drafty homes, and more fossil fuels being burned to keep us warm. Come join us for a conversation with three representatives from WindowDressers, a volunteer-based organization that builds low-cost insulating window inserts for Maine residents of all income levels. Learn how you can get insulating window inserts for your own home or business and learn how you can get involved with this grassroots, local organization to warm homes, help the environment, and build community.

Jessica Williams is a resident of South Portland and has been involved in sustainability related work since 2013.
