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
