Climate Action Now!
For the past three years Sustainable Rossmoor has sponsored events, speakers and films around Earth Day. Our intent is to educate and inspire Rossmoor residents to become involved and to be able to participate in sustainability as a way of life for a safe and healthy future for our planet. This year, Sustainable Rossmoor will be presenting events throughout the month of April to celebrate the earth and encourage residents to make changes in their own lives to help support our endangered environment.
The club will have speakers on climate change, the effect of climate on our health, sustainable food choices and more. Tim O’Keefe, CEO of Golden Rain Foundation, and other GRF managers will give a presentation. They will talk about the sustainable changes coming to Rossmoor this year. We will also be bringing back our Residential Solar event for residents who are interested in learning about solar panels. Sustainable Rossmoor will also be hosting three town‐hall style meetings with RecycleSmart. RecycleSmart will introduce composting green waste into all the trash enclosures of Rossmoor during Earth Month. Watch future editions of the Rossmoor News for articles about all the upcoming Earth Month events.
Want to learn more about how to reduce your carbon footprint? After April, come to Sustainable Rossmoor meetings the first Tuesday of every month at 7 p.m. in the Fairway Room at Creekside. We encourage residents to ride the bus, bike or walk to all Sustainable Rossmoor events when possible. It’s not too late to help save our planet.
