Preserving Our Past by Protecting Our Future
Our Mission and Vision
We are a community organization working to reduce waste and pollution and achieve net zero carbon emissions by 2040. Our vision is a vibrant and engaged community actively addressing the climate crisis to ensure our town and planet are habitable and safe for future generations.
An average two-person household has a carbon footprint of 47 tons of CO2 equivalent per year. The largest energy hogs are transportation (air travel, car manufacturing, and car fuel), home (construction, water, oil, natural gas, and electricity), food, goods, and services.
