Washington, DC

Thanks to Lara for sharing the, what looks like, a post carbque situation “in Mt. Vernon Sq. on 4th by Ridge St.”

And more importantly:

“I’d like to share the Opt to Act from REI which gives everyday citizens a 52 week guide to being a better environmental steward. Weekly challenges are assigned to give us the tools to improve our carbon footprint like opting out of junk mail (which no one wants in the first place) and how to recycle snack wrappers! I know that the real burden to change the climate needs to come from major changes from government and corporations, but if we all become a bit more conscious of our impact, it’s possible we can create a larger cultural shift!

If anyone wants to get more involved and to know the state of the crisis and what is being done (or rather NOT being done), I HIGHLY recommend the newsletter HEATED by Emily Atkins. “A newsletter for people who are pissed off about climate change.” You won’t regret it!”
