The Sustainability Network

We promote the work of our renewable energy and sustainable sponsors, revealing the urgency of change by rooting it in the progress of the past.

We are partnering with renewable energy companies and environmentally friendly businesses to promote this history and your work in our outreach.

History of wind power
Mills to turbines: hundreds of years of sustainable craft and renewable energy history.

Caring for the world’s largest archive and library dedicated to milling history, the Mills Archive Trust has built a growing community nationwide. Heritage institutions and thousands of interested readers are ready to be shown the opportunities for a greener future. From wind and watermills to turbines and solar power, we engage them with the history of sustainable energy and crafts. Our outreach materials offer you a unique medium to tell our audience about your part in this history, including:

  • 150,000 annual visitors to our website.
  • 5,000 subscribers to our weekly e-newsletters and monthly Renewable Roots articles, including custodians of heritage institutions and mills.
  • 700 recipients of our biannual Mill Memories magazine, also available online. With your help, we will increase this to over 1,000.
  • Heritage institutions nationwide and a major national conservation society.

Your impact

Volunteers at work in the Archive

You are committed to sustainability, while not becoming distracted from what matters the most to you: your business. You are collaborative and are excited at the prospect of joining a network that approaches a big problem from a unique angle, helping to make it a success.

Sponsoring our work will grow the promotion opportunities for your business. Our interns and volunteers continually expand our audience by writing articles, creating online exhibitions and cataloguing archival records on new sustainability topics.

From preserving the history of renewable energy to endangered craft skills, these stories attract the audience interested in your work. Your support will allow our volunteers and interns to gain the experience they need to preserve humanity’s collective memory in heritage institutions across the country.

Our tiered partnerships will help you to reach the segment of our audience that is right for you.
