How and/or where did you first hear out about this Meetup group?

What was it that got you interested in sustainability?

I have always been interested in preserving our natural environment, and with the earth's resources being depleted and pollution building, I want to do my part to help minimize the impact to our planet to the benefit of all.

How are you engaging in sustainable living at work and at home?

My office environment is set-up to minimize the use of paper products. At home I strive to "buy local" and try to avoid buying packaged goods. I recycle as much as possible and try to minimize my carbon imprint. I encourage others to do the same.

What do you see as the biggest challenges facing our community with regard to creating a sustainable future?

With the world's population increasing at an alarming rate, I wonder how we can keep up with minimizing pollution and resource depletion when the planet is already bursting at the seams. Nonetheless, we must keep doing our best to win the battle!

    Hi Brian,

    Welcome to the HSP meetup. I'm with you - really dislike noisy restaurants and cannot stand nightclubs. Our super perceptiveness does help things balance out though eh?

    Hope to meet you in person at one of the meetups.

    Brian, yesterday's meeting at the Light House was so cool that I was left thinking about it all day. Excellent group, I would like to stay in touch with all. did you started a meetup group for the Tuesday meetings at the Light House already? Have they all signed in? How can I contact them again, we need a wall to post messages and greetings, if meetup is a cost you don't want to run into, why not in facebook?

    Good stuff Brian!
    I am glad to hear about this group and its meetings happening at the Light House Sustainability C. There are excellent resources there and I am sure we will be able to bring more ideas and projects into the drafting table. I will do my best to wake up early and get there on time to start the day with a cup of grinded coffee beans and a small talk on sustainability.­
