Who We Are:

To educate ourselves about sustainable lifestyle practices and incorporate them into our daily lives.
To promote and encourage these practices within our local community and connect with other like-minded people.
On a wider scale, with our community, influence our elected officials to adopt policies that address the urgent issue of climate change.
