My annual Blue Sky Renewable Energy Program statement from came today from Pacific Power and I couldn't be prouder. My support of renewable energy over the past year:
Avoided 13,200 pounds of CO2 = 14,212 miles not driven or
155 trees planted
They also informed me that by participating, I supported the Dry Creek Landfill Gas Project (powering 3,200 homes for a year); a wind power project in Wasco, Oregon; and four native fish habitat restoration projects.
Why am I telling you all of this?
Because it was a strong reminder for me (and hopefully others in sustainable event management) to share the story with every conference participant who takes a moment to sort their waste instead of tossing into the landfill or walks instead of taking a cab or reuses their towels.
Don't forget to make them feel good all over again for making a wise choice!
