Take Action


Get involved. Whether you are an INDIVIDUAL, a COMMUNITY or a BUSINESS, there are actions to take. Some in five minutes. Some take a little more time. Some cost nothing. Some require more of an investment. Some are simple. Some more complicated. Find an organization you want to join, learn how to become carbon neutral (at least), learn about the power of your investments, find the latest EVENTS (in person or on the web), and browse sustainable products in SHOPPING.

Reduce, reuse and recycle. Learn first how to electrify and then, how to shift the source of electricity to renewables — wind, solar, hydropower.

Discover the power you exercise with what you eat, how you travel, what you buy, how you conserve and who you vote for.
