Do you know what changes you would have to make in your lifestyle to achieve a sustainable carbon footprint? Do you know what policy changes our country would have to make in order to achieve livable carbon reduction?
Please join us for an enjoyable and informative presentation by Dr. Bob Bindschadler, a retired NASA scientist now living in Quilcene, WA. Taming Bigfoot is a friendly team-based competition designed to help participants reduce their carbon footprint. It was successfully run in Port Townsend, Jefferson County, in 2016, with 15 teams.
What were the results? A number of team members have adopted less carbon-intensive behaviors on an on-going basis (83% of survey respondents said they will incorporate the changes they made into the future); they are learning to ask about local products and organic produce; and they are better prepared to help their friends and neighbors make better, more sustainable choices. This is the first step to encourage people to not only reduce their personal carbon footprint but also to work on passing local and state legislation to reduce our collective carbon footprint.
Can we replicate this in Seattle? This is your chance to ask questions and find out!
