Kristin Holstrom, coordinator of The New Community Coalition, hosts a Sustainable Action Cafe at Telluride's five-star Wilkinson Public Library. The first gathering in a series takes place Tuesday, December 14, 8:30 – 10 a.m. We created these informal get-togethers with you in mind if you are tired of talk and want to see some action.
This month’s "action: targets ways to green up the holidays. It goes without saying we in Telluride all hope for a very white winter and pray for more snow. But green and white are not a bad combination.
At this Sustainable Action Cafe, Kris plans to open up the discussion to include local and green holiday gift ideas, and tips for saving money. Do we have to buy to be happy? If we don’t buy how do businesses survive? What does a thriving, sustainable community look like during the holidays and after? Other thoughts? Please bring them with you on Tuesday.
The New Community Coalition also plans an update on our EcoAction Program starting in January. This self-monitoring program, with mentorship support, is designed to see how and where individual residences and small businesses are using energy and find ways to reduce consumption and expenses. And we are looking for volunteers.
At the event, The New Community Coalition also plans to have great holiday items for sale: LED holiday lights, Klean Kanteen water bottles and insulated mugs, To-GO Ware, reusable lunch boxes and bamboo utensils.
Everyone in town is encouraged to attend: visitors, full- and part-time residents, business owners, employees, ski bums, couch surfers – anyone. Feel free to bring your breakfast and your favorite mug for coffee or tea.
