Lots of times we read great suggestions for what "ordinary people" can do to reduce their environmental impact, but often these ideas only apply if you own your own house. The "Green Renter" series at Solar1 is aimed at the ordinary people in NYC who rent, and want to contribute to a more sustainable world. Now in its third season, the Green Renter is a weekly lecture series that addresses a broad variety of environmental subjects of New York interest, ranging from individual household practices to important local activist initiatives.
Coming Tuesday Feb. 5: Saving Energy in Your Apartment, with Elyssa Rothe, the Energy $mart Communities Coordinator at the South Bronx Overall Economic Development Corporation (SoBRO). More details at http://solar1.org/events/greenrenter/ .
