We understand there is a fundamental connection between climate and health. We recognize that the health care industry has a particularly large carbon footprint. We feel a responsibility to seek out ways to reduce that footprint, in both our professional and personal lives. Using friendly competition and camaraderie, we aim to inspire others to join us in slowing climate change.

    Bamboo alternatives are not readily available in the community where I live, however, more take-out locations are converting to compostable plastics and food containers which makes the choice to utilize sustainable resources easier. The two I can think of off hand are Taco Time and Seattle Art Museum!

    Traveling through japan was fast and easy due to their amazing transit system! I look forward to sharing my experience with local officials and seeing if we can’t boost our system!

    Land and fertilizer waste motivates me to change my behavior regarding food waste. It motivates me because this is something that affects us as human beings and future generations to come. It also affects the animal world, bees, for example. th0F1G5QTH.jpg 12.18 KB
