Welcome. Cape & Islands Self-Reliance is a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation, whose mission is to promote environmentally sound technologies and sustainable practices through education, advocacy and collective membership that provides tangible benefits.
Cape & Islands Self-Reliance was founded in 1980 to identify, facilitate and educate the public about sound environmental practices that help protect our ecosystem. By educating and empowering the consumer, Self-Reliance acts as a catalyst in implementing cost-saving, pollution-reducing opportunities for homeowners, businesses and municipalities. Self-Reliance’s community-supported buying cooperative was established over 20 years ago to place the purchasing power in the hands of the consumer by enabling citizens of Cape Cod and Southeastern Massachusetts to buy necessary services at affordable group rates.

December 18, 2012: We've been alerted to an issue with our return mail envelopes. It seems the bar code on the bottom of the envelope is causing some of them to be returned to the sender. If you have a self-addressed return envelope from Self Reliance, please cross out (with white out, marker, enough to make it unreadable by a machine) the bar code on the lower right hand side. That should be enough for the machine to read the address rather than the code. Our apologies for this inconvenience and thanks for your help!
