The City of Bainbridge Island is working to reduce greenhouse gas emissions 25% by 2025 and needs your help!
The City has a goal to sign up 550 households in the Bainbridge Island Climate Smart Challenge, and complete actions to reduce 200 tons of carbon dioxide (CO2), by May 31, 2023. How big of an impact will that make? Reducing 200 tons of CO2 is equivalent to the annual electricity use for 39 homes!
Each month, the City will focus on a new Climate Smart topic with supporting events and tips to help you commit to new actions that will help earn you points. Everyone who has earned at least 10,000 points in the Challenge by the end of May will be entered to win one of five outdoor or indoor composting bins.
