The Environment Working Group is working on:
- Carbon emission reduction: There is no more urgent global problem that climate change, and reducing emissions is a critical part of the solution. Fortunately, many great organizations are working on this, and the SV4A Environment Working Group is going to help. In 2018, SV4A liaisons will attend meetings of Citizens' Climate Lobby and 350.org (and perhaps others) and report back to our group on initiatives where our group can help make a difference.
- Reduction of single-use plastics: More plastic in the ocean than fish by 2050? Not on our watch! How might we persuade our local food service businesses and organizations to stop distributing needless straws, plastic forks/spoons, condiment packets, and water bottles? We've got some great ideas for addressing this under-appreciated global waste crisis. Let's create a model together that any city might use.
