City's first steps
The City of Edmonds has already taken many steps toward energy savings in the areas of public works, land use, transportation, and public education activities, including: switching to B-20 biodiesel fuel in most City-owned vehicles, switching to energy-efficient LED lighting in traffic signals, retrofitting plumbing systems in City-owned buildings for water efficiency, supporting rapid transit initiatives, and offering public education on solid waste reduction and recycling.
How can I help?
How you live, eat, and travel affects our climate. As carbon dioxide gases are released into the atmosphere, the atmospheric temperature is raised and global warming is a result. The results of this warming threaten our existence on earth if left unchecked. You are responsible for creating 11 tons of carbon dioxide a year. Outside of the United States, individuals create only about four tons a year. Here are some simple steps you can take right now to help.
On the road
In your yard
Most importantly, be a role model for climate protection. Your children and your grandchildren will thank you!
The Mayor's Climate Protection Committee meets the first Thursday of every other month starting in January from 8:45 - 10 am in the Fourtner Room ~ 3rd Floor of Edmonds City Hall, 121 5th Avenue North.
