The LTSN welcomes you to our new Sustainable Supplies Initiative. Our goal is to reduce the cost of purchasing business and home supplies from sustainable suppliers by gathering together local businesses and families to order supplies in bulk. We are currently assembling a list of interested businesses, families, and other individuals or groups of people to figure out whether we can reach a critical mass to get this program economically feasible. Our current plan is to have delivery service for businesses and schedule convenient pick-up times for families, though this might change based on supply and demand for this service and what is economically feasible.

The Tower Grove Neighborhoods Community Development Corporation had a great workshop on home weatherizing yesterday. While many of the speakers suggested hiring contractors to help weatherize, not all of us can afford to do so. Therefore, the LTSN is putting together a Home Weatherizing Group. This will be a group of people who are interested in weatherizing their home, and are interested in working together to learn how to do it well, and to help each other out. We encourage both renters and home-owners to join–the more the merrier!

If you are interested, please email Ingbert Schmidt at and we’ll get you added to the list!
