Hey Sustainable Peeps!

 Can you believe the first month of 2023 has already gone? I don’t know about you but it seems like time goes by so quickly. So many things going on at Sustainable Cobourg for 2023 and we need you all to help ‘be the change’.

Here’s an example of what we’ve been up to.

Our EV Director, David Kuhnke and his amazing team including Judy Smith our Climate Change Director, have been working for the past couple of years to highlight and inform our past and present council and Mayor about the electrification of Town vehicles and the need for more electric charging stations for the general public. 

Why? Well because: number one, by not using gas and diesel its way better for the environment, meaning less pollution and cleaner air for us to breathe; number two, there’s so little maintenance for EVs that the costs are really negligible for maintenance (which is good when considering the Town’s future Operating Budget): number three, we can take down our carbon footprint that eases the effects of creating Greenhouse Gases like Carbon Dioxide (which is what burning fossil fuels emits and affects climate to behave in problematic ways).

So, good for our health, good for the ‘pocketbook’ and good for the planet, which covers the 3 pillars of sustainability: environmental stewardship, social responsibility and economic resilience!

Want to know more?

Well it just so happens that our next SOS, oh my gosh, TOMORROW, (how did that happen???) at Venture 13 from 5:00 to 6:30 p.m. will be about just that. 

Hope to see all you ‘change makers’ Thursday February 2 (we meet the first Thursday of every month) at Venture 13.
