Last year, we attended a carbon footprint workshop and since then we’ve had a steadily diminishing amount that isn’t recycled or composted. Others in Berkeley seem to have done the same, which is one of the reasons why refuse revenues in the city are down.

But the planet is a more important cause than city revenues, so you can learn how to reduce your footprint tonight at a free workshop run by the City of Berkeley, the Ecology Center, the Berkeley Energy Commission and the Berkeley Fellowship of Unitarian Universalists.

There will be practical advice on reducing your personal and community emissions, and learn about energy efficiency and renewable energy options for your home. The workshop will be at 7 p.m. this evening at the Berkeley Fellowship of Unitarian Universalists, 1924 Cedar Avenue (cross street Bonita). Free childcare and free bicycle parking are available.
