New Year, Same Walnut Creek Saves
It’s 2018 and Walnut Creek Saves is coming into a new year. Now is a great time to reflect back on all that’s been achieved in 2017 on the micro and macro scale when it comes to energy and water conservation. When we look at the world as a whole, we see a planet with more and more countries signing on take action against climate change, we see new innovative technologies, and we see tastes of what a clean and renewable world could look like. However, it’s not all positive and we’ve got a lot of work to do.
2017 seemed to be a year of natural disasters. We’ve had huge wildfires, hurricanes, earthquakes, the continuation of droughts, and more; at times it felt like the end of the world. Although this is not all directly attributable to climate change, there is no doubt that it has at least been a factor in the chaos. We saw the saddening parts of human’s relationship with nature burn houses down and fill the bay area with smoke leading to people wearing masks in the streets and the air quality in the burning areas reaching near toxic. During this time, Walnut Creek Saves actually had to cancel a few outreach events. It was a low point in the health of our local ecosystems, but I think it forces us to strive for better.
That is what we can look forward to in 2018; better. We must continue to save as much energy and water as we individually can, taking the responsibility on all of our shoulders to better achieve our goals and to lessen the burden on others. Walnut Creek Saves is bringing awareness to the people of Walnut Creek, and orienting them towards our best future. It is our philosophy that this personalized approach makes people as engaged as possible and it benefits everyone involved.
Working with this program you get a distinct feeling that it is working, that people are more interested in doing the right thing for the planet than they ever realized. Hopefully, in 2018 there are more people that feel that way, and on the micro and macro level, change happens for the best. I’m optimistic, and I hope that you are too.
