We have 5 “pillars of decarbonization” here at the SLO Climate Coalition:
- Decarbonize Electricity
- Electrify Transportation
- Electrify Buildings
- Promote natural solutions
- Strive for Zero Waste
Every single person in SLO County has a role to play in making these goals a reality.
Businesses, though, have a special role to play. They make important decisions every day that affect our carbon footprint and while many of them have our environment’s best interests at heart, not all of them know how to achieve an optimal state of planetary zen.
Enter: the SLO Green Business Network. Since 2009, they certify and verify that a given California business has taken the necessary steps to be considered “green”. In its first year of operation in SLO County it has already has certified EcoSLO, the Chamber of Commerce, SunRun, Gatherings Thrift, and Reduce Reuse Grow as green businesses. Additionally, the Hive, Art’s Cyclery, MindBody, Chris Burkard’s Studio, Green Goods, Natural Healing Center, Megan’s CBD Market, and others are nearing completion, with many more in process.
Help us support the network by liking their Facebook page, sharing this awesome video, and talking to your boss or employees about joining the growing list of environmentally conscious companies!
