Sustainable Earth Solutions Club
The goal of our Sustainable Earth Solutions Club is to help our friends and family better understand the complex set of challenges faced by our community and greater civilization. From energy choices that affect levels of pollution and related illnesses, to climate change and other large scale weather events and seasonal disruptions, opportunities exist to re-think and re-invent social norms. With immense challenges come an equal number of opportunities to take positive actions to limit impacts to our living world. With roughly 7 billion people on our planet, the sum of everything we do impacts our world on a large scale. If each of us can do a few things to use less energy when we need it, waste less energy when we don't need to use it, and learn more about and support renewable energies, we'll all be better off. Club meets every Tuesday and Thursday in 185. Please join us when you can.
