Hello DCGC Meetup Members!
Welcome and thank you for joining this new social networking group whose goal is to help build the green economy locally and promote sustainable living widely! We are at an exciting time in history when not only scientists and environmentalists, but our own government, finally acknowledges the reality of climate change. There are many steps that we as individuals can take to minimize our ecological footprint on this earth, including reducing our fossil fuel use and needless waste, for example. But also, as consumers, we have the power to shape and guide our nation's economy toward more sustainable products and service options. While it may seem daunting at first to imagine changing a long held culture of materialism and consumerism into one of living simply, living green, we all saw the powerful impacts of the grassroots movement when our national leader was elected in 2008. This is testimony to the fact that we all have the power to be the change that we wish to see in the world. Now let's just act together and start that ripple effect that will be felt across the country, and across the world. Starting right here in our own backyard, the nation's capital of Washington, DC.
I invite you to join the DC Green Connection if you have not done so already. You can also learn more at our organization's website: www.thedcgreenconection.com where you can also sign up for our monthly newsletter. If I have not yet had the pleasure of meeting you, than I will look forward to doing so at a future DC Green event. Please feel free to share your ideas for new discussion topics, venues and green opinions with me, with all of us! And spread the word about the DC Green Connection to your friends and colleagues. Let's get connected!
With green gratitude,
