Make Sure You are Counted!

Even without a pandemic, 2020 would have been a big year. Our decennial census is happening right now and it’s critical that you are counted to ensure our community gets all the funding we deserve.

You may have also noticed 2020 is an election year! Here’s the information you need to ensure you vote is counted as well.

  1. Join a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)
  2. Start a backyard compost
  3. Buy more local and/or organic foods
  4. Purchase eco-friendly products (such as a bamboo toothbrush or clothing from recycled materials)
  5. Plant a native tree or plant
  6. Use less plastic
  7. Use a reusable water bottle and coffee mug
  8. Keep Tupperware and stainless-steel utensils in your car to use for leftovers and takeout
  9. Decline a straw when ordering a drink in a restaurant
  10. Bring your own bags when you go shopping
