There's a lot happening on Appledore Island, including some amazing work by the Sustainable Engineering Interns (SEI) to increase the island's energy efficiency and push for more sustainable innovations that will ultimately create a greener future. Follow along on their journey as they brave seagulls to work on solar panels and talk about crappy solutions (literally!) that offer a way to conserve the island's freshwater supply! Documenting along the way will be SML’s Sustainability Communications Intern.
We'd love to hear from you! Whether you have a question about our work on the island, or would just like to say hi, drop us a line and we'll be sure to get back to you!
