Ed. Note: Speaking of carbonfreedc I officially sold my car Tues. night! Also, you guys had a definite impact on the $20,000 grant – back in July I posted a Dear PoP asking you to vote for carbonfreedc and they won!

Here’s the full press release:

On July 22, CarbonfreeDC won 1 of 5 $20,000 grants from National Geographic and Sun Chips in the Green Effect competition. From over 2,500 entries, CarbonfreeDC’s Extreme Green Neighborhood Makeover proposal won over the judges, even becoming Frito-Lay VP Dave Haft’s favorite submission.

The Extreme Green Neighborhood Makeover aims to help 20 deserving families green their homes and lower their energy bills with energy-efficient upgrades, weatherization, water conserving enhancements and much more. As part of the project, CarbonfreeDC will host educational workshops in the selected neighborhoods to help others take action in their own homes.

CarbonfreeDC is excited to announce the DC neighborhoods of Deanwood and Shaw have been chosen to be a part of the Extreme Green Neighborhood Makeover. Thanks to Pastor and Mrs. Newell of the New Covenant Evangelistic Center and Commissioner Sylvia C. Brown for their compelling nominations that lead to our decision to choose these neighborhoods. Now we will go about the process of choosing 20 deserving homes from these neighborhoods to receive the green makeover treatment.

We’re about a month out from summer. That means you’ve still got time for spring cleaning!

Lexi Grant, an operations manager at Well-Paid Maids, shared her go-to spring cleaning tips with WTOP News. Step one? Declutter. Get rid of items you don’t use, find space for items that need a home and organize those areas.

Then, it’s time to dust. Lexi starts with high-touch surface areas (think: refrigerator, dishwasher, counters, microwave). One area she sees often neglected is the bedroom — and it makes sense. Heavy furniture is difficult to move around, but it’s important to really get in there so dust doesn’t affect your sleep.
