Personal Steps Toward NetZero We Can Take Right Now

This post was also shared by USGBC-CA.The climate crisis has become part of our reality as we experience extreme heat, flooding, fires, rising insurance and energy costs. We mourn over the human loss of entire countries reduced to rubble and may not even comprehend the carbon cost to rebuild them. It may feel discouraging to think, as a single person, that we can make a meaningful impact. I believe we can.

Design Inspiration: Parkitecture

It is Earth Day - a time to celebrate our magnificent planet. At TBA we love to go outdoors. Many of us hike, bike, run, or surf. Some of us camp or stargaze in our protected wildernesses: our National and State Parks.
