...building an ecologically healthy future in a sustainable economy

Model House & Sustainability Education Program

Through the Rhode Island Sustainability Initiative, this nonprofit organization is taking a multi-faceted approach to transform RI into the nation's first "sustainable state." The goal is to promote sustainability principles into businesses, communities and family living. Apeiron, with the help of numerous volunteers, has built an environmentally friendly house and resource center in Coventry. The center is open to the public and hosts educational programs and other resource activities. Apeiron was also instrumental in the launch of People's Power and Light, statewide Sustainability Conferences, it's annual Sustainable Living Festival, and the Information and Resource Center.
