How big is your footprint? A “carbon footprint” is the amount of greenhouse gases your activities generate in a year, and includes driving, flying, heating your house, and even eating, all of which contribute to climate change. Estimate your footprint and sign up by May 31 to win a ride in a Tesla.
The friendly competition and team support will continue. First footprint party will be June 6 at Hood River Riverside Church at 6:30-8:00 PM.
WARNING: SIGNING UP FOR THE GORGE FOOTPRINT CHALLENGE CAN LEAD TO LOWER GREENHOUSE GAS EMISSIONS, INCREASED SAVINGS, MORE COMFORTABLE HOUSES, HEALTHIER AIR, SEXIER CARS, INCREASED PHYSICAL FITNESS, AND OTHER SPECTACULAR SIDE EFFECTS.
