Many of us are looking for ways to reduce our environmental impact, but navigating the world of solutions can be a challenge. Fortunately, a group of passionate climate activists are here to help. Green Change is a local climate action network that helps people go green.
“Many people are concerned about climate change, but don’t know what to do,” says Fabrice Florin. “That’s why we started Green Change: to show you simple ways you can take action in your own life.” A multimedia artist based in Mill Valley, Florin founded this nonprofit group after making a number of life changes to address global warming. He bought an electric car, started biking more, stopped flying, and began eating a plant-rich diet. Through these changes, Fabrice was able to significantly reduce his carbon footprint in just 6 months and is now helping others do the same.
Green Change encourages community collaboration and promotes climate actions that each of us can take to lower our use of energy, transportation, food and other resources that contribute to climate change.
In just a few months, Green Change has inspired hundreds of Marin residents to make meaningful lifestyle changes, and join their climate action network.
To help more people take action, volunteers produce free events, videos and online guides, all available at GreenChange.net. “We want to help everyone make a green change in their life and feel great about it”, says Florin. “This is all about connecting with your neighbors to solve the climate crisis together. Go green with us!”
This fall, Good Earth is teaming up with Green Change to host a series of free meetups in the Good Earth Classroom, located in our Mill Valley location. Each free meetup features short talks by climate action experts, followed by group discussions. Visit our events page to learn more. We hope to see you there!
