U.S. EPA Region 5 partnered with the Fond du Lac Band of Lake Superior Chippewa to create a Tribal Community-Based Social Marketing (CBSM) Training Guide. This training guide provides an overview of how to use the CBSM process to increase sustainable behaviors in tribal communities.

Learn more about CBSM, how to use the Tribal CBSM Training Guide, and how to receive peer mentoring to develop your own CBSM project through the EPA Tribal Waste Management Peer Matching Program.
