Empower Your Community on Climate and Sustainability Solutions
Cities Are Stepping Up
All across the U.S. and beyond, cities are taking the lead and setting bold goals on climate. However, 40-60% of community emissions come from 4 basic household activities, which are often difficult to reach with policies alone. The great news - there are now affordable solutions for all 4 activities that can also save families money, improve air quality and create local jobs. Engaging resident on climate solutions can make a big impact today and help create a safer, healthier future!
According to Yale research, over two thirds of Americans are concerned about climate change and want to help, but don’t know what to do. Residents care and learning about solutions and taking action is a positive, rewarding and community building experience.
