Sustainable Marin has three exciting projects where you can plug into local community action:
Resilient Neighborhoods empowers people to reduce their household CO2 emissions and create communities resilient to the impacts of climate change through personal and local actions. Since 2011, RN has helped over 1,000 people to reduce 5.6 million lbs. of carbon emissions. Households achieve an average of 30% CO2 reduction. The program is proven to have long-term energy reduction impact. RN’s goal by the end of 2020 is to have empowered a total of 2,000 people to reduce 10 million lbs. of CO2.
