It is not very often that green energy and a solar provider can take part in a community challenge. But, the Cleaner Contra Costa Challenge is one we are excited to be a part of! Contra Costa County has made a commitment to the well-being of our Contra Costa communities – and one-way well-being is measured is through the overall health of our community members. Healthy communities are a cumulative of a healthy climate, economy, natural resources, and people. Contra Costa has made the decision to further support healthy communities by initiating a movement to create a cleaner community. Our community leaders understand that every decision we make as individuals, businesses, and communities can make a major impact on the overall health of a community. TO make ‘clean’ fun, the county has launched the Cleaner Contra Costa Challenge.
By logging into cleanercontracosta.org, you can explore different ways you can take action to reduce your environmental impact on the community. The website is incredibly easy to follow, where you can choose from big actions, transportation strategies, choices in energy efficiency, water efficiency, tips for renters and easy changes you can make in your daily activities to reduce your impact on the environment. The website makes making changes fun as each change you implement has an associated point value. These point values add up and are allocated to your profile and the profile of your city – and you can actually count how much small changes can add up to in protecting the environment.
To get started, all you need to do is sign up. You create a profile for your household. By entering basic information on your current activities, cleanercontracosta.org will be able to provide you an array of action steps you can take to reduce your environmental impact. Even more so, as you explore ways you can reduce your impact, you can add them to your personalized dashboard. Cleanercontracosta.org will then help you determine what the next best steps are, associated costs and answer any questions you might have. The website is a fun, powerful tool that helps you understand how you can help save the world.
