Moving beyond the trend: Developing sustainable environmentally-friendly museums

GMI_Logo I received an email today from the Green Museum Initiative, or GMI, filling me in on a new website that is meant to inspire sustainable practices and offer practical ideas for museums!

This website includes:

  • practical information about reducing, reusing, and recycling in each department of a museum;
  • a Resource Guide to deepen understanding and practices;
  • information about the Green Museums Accord, an institution-wide commitment to begin (or continue) sustainable practices at an organization;
  • inspirational thinking about being green;
  • a growing number of stories about museums and their environmentally sensitive practices.

Developing and sustaining environmentally-friendly institutions should be a priority for any museum and this website effectively takes you through each department, step-by-step, and demonstrates the best ways to accomplish this. Going green should not just be a fad, it should be a way of thinking as we build our museums into sustainable cultural hubs.
