“I’m In!” for Climate Action

I’m in.

“Since taking the pledge, I’ve been using my vehicle less by walking to the grocery store for small hauls.”
~ Teresa, Bellingham Resident

Achieving the goals in our Council-approved, community-supported Climate Protection Action Plan depends on everyone in the Bellingham community to take steps towards securing a clean and vibrant future. Whether you are just starting to make environmentally-minded choices, or you are a seasoned change maker, there are always new and effective ways to be involved, and many of them are no or low-cost changes.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

These are the top actions you can personally take that will have the biggest impact on reducing Bellingham’s emissions and protecting our future:

  • Shift your transportation mode
  • Use less energy inside
  • Switch to low-carbon electricity ​
  • Make your voice heard

 “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step” … What step will you take for climate action?

Find resources for each of these actions below and take the “I’m In!” ple​dge. Participants in Whatcom County are eligible to enter a quarterly prize drawing for a tool to help you take your next step.
