“I want to thank you for all your good advice and insight into how we can address the energy conservation side of energy use.  I think it has been useful to extend our efforts to encouraging more sustainable behavior at Millbrook by focusing on shorter showers, increasing recycling rates, and using less paper.  We are making progress on all three fronts from several different angles.  Your help in developing a strategy for these projects has been very helpful.  I’ve enjoyed working with you, and I hope that our paths may cross again in the future.”

“We used Wynn Calder for the initial assessments, and for shepherding us through the development of the master plan.  He is the NAIS sustainability guru, and a great guy.  His rates are extremely reasonable, and he comes equipped with numerous case studies and examples from countless schools and colleges.  He is well worth the money up front to do it right.”
– Will Willis, Sustainability Director, Mercersburg Academy

“Wynn, in combination with an engineer colleague of his, provided Mercersburg with a cost-effective, quick, and thorough analysis of our sustainability program. As a result, we now have a better sense of what we have been doing well, what we can change easily for quick savings, and what we might contemplate for longer-term change. In all of the recommendations, the technical elements are blended with the curricular and philosophical observations, so Mercersburg now has a framework and foundation for methodical change that could influence the entirety of our ethos and program, not just one element.”
– Will Willis, Sustainability Director, Mercersburg Academy

“Thank you for sharing your experience and insight about sustainability, particularly as it applies to independent schools. You helped to set a context, provide common language, give comparative projects from other schools, and get us thinking and talking about sustainability. Although we have begun to take some serious steps, we still have a long way to go. Still, it is an exciting journey to begin and thanks for helping us begin that odyssey today.”
