  • Making healthy choices in personal products, foods, and products for our homes. Contact: Doris Lewis
  • Opportunities to reduce carbon emissions through good building practices. Contact: Laurel Farnsworth
  • Participating in rallies, climate meetings, and contacting policy makers to reduce carbon emissions and promote renewable energy. Contact: Mark Leicester
