The Green Committee
The Green Committee at the Milwaukee County Zoo includes staff from across the Zoo and Zoological Society, along with Zoo Pride volunteers and vendor representatives. The Green Committee meets regularly to maintain sustainable environmental efforts across our organizations. The mission of the committee is to identify, advance, and promote policies and practices that minimize negative impact and maximize environmental benefits through comprehensive input and collaboration from all Zoo areas. Together, we have implemented numerous policies across our organizations, including procedures on environmentally friendly cleaning solutions, energy use reductions, and single-use plastics.
