Rethink Energy: What Can I Do?

This regularly-scheduled sponsored Q&A column is written by the Arlington Initiative to Rethink Energy team (AIRE). This county program helps you make smart energy decisions that save you money and leaves a lighter footprint on the environment. Got a question? Email us at [email protected]!

You’ve heard it all before at year’s end. Blah blah blah make a change. Blah blah blah eat more kale. Blah blah blah save money, set a goal, make a resolution, etc.

Before you pop some champagne and celebrate the new year with friends, it never hurts to start thinking about the year to come. With the landmark Paris climate agreement, our global community is taking unprecedented action together toward a more sustainable planet. Our collective action is where the rubber meets the road.

Resolutions related to money and health top most resolution lists, but we’d like to ask you to rethink how those can relate to energy. Regardless of the personal changes you decide to make in your life, the New Year is a great time to join other Arlingtonians and create a climate of change in our community.
