Are Rossmoor residents interested in ways to save energy and water, stay comfortable, save money and reduce air pollution?
Sustainable Rossmoor thinks yes.
The Cleaner Contra Costa Challenge is an online platform that provides residents with ways to reduce climate change by taking actions in their everyday lives. The Challenge gives step-by-step instructions for Actions that will not only have an impact on the climate, but also save money, keep air cleaner, improve health, and create local jobs.
Are Rossmoor residents ready to join with their friends to show fellow Contra Costa County residents just how committed and serious they are about climate, health, and jobs in the county? Are they read to win?
Sustainable Rossmoor thinks yes. Rossmoor residents have friends within their entry ways, club memberships, sports and more.
