YOU CAN TAKE RIGHT NOW

Transportation contributes about 41% of our greenhouse gas emissions  - more than any other sector.

"Zero Emission Transportation" isn't just electric vehicles! It includes all of the ways we get around, including our feet, bicycles, and public transportation.

 EASY ACTIONS 

YOU CAN TAKE RIGHT NOW

The energy we use in our buildings contributes about 26% of our greenhouse gas emissions.

Eliminating gas from our buildings improves indoor air quality, and improving energy efficiency saves money.

Win-Win, right?

 EASY ACTIONS 

YOU CAN TAKE RIGHT NOW

Food waste is the #3 greenhouse gas contributor on a global scale. 

Locally, what is wasted

in the fields, in grocery store dumpsters, and the back of our refrigerators is not just a waste of food and money, but also adds methane gas to the atmosphere.
