Ready to Go Green?
The Adobie Environmental Group is about finding out what is working and not working in preserving our planet. At this moment the group is you and me, and I am in no way an expert in the sustainability of our environment. I am interested in what more we can do to keep our land, air and water clean and how we can clean what is not.
I have been involved with Rotary since 1999 and ever since Rotary International added a committee called Preserve Planet Earth, I have focused some of my project work on the environment.
To provide environmental resources, share green travel experiences, support local economies who are wise to sustainability and to build on change.
I appreciate the world we live in for what we were given and how it was given to us to use in our lifetime. I value how fortunate I am to be able to drink clean water, breathe clean air and live in a city that tries to lessen its waste.
