As an Economic Development Organization (EDO), we like to take care of the Earth while ensuring a future for the Chippewa Valley. That's why the CEDC works hard with both government and business to create the most sustainable economic development possible. Climate change will continue to affect the state of affairs in the world, and we hope to mitigate that early by taking action now. Here are some ways that individuals and businesses can ensure an economic future as well as maintain the beauty of the Earth: Collaborate with other individuals or businesses to reuse or recycle by-products. Purchase goods locally to reduce both transportation time and cost. Instead of disposing of unwanted/surplus items, pass them on to another member of the community.
