The Moving Beyond Sustainability Project Challenge #1:

Car free April in Los Angeles

As a renewable energy/sustainability consultant I thought I would challenge myself and decide to literally ‘walk my talk’. And by that I mean I will not use my car for a month in Los Angeles. I will continue my work, but I will not be able to use my car for any of it.

For those living in Los Angeles, you know how difficult this will be. A friend recently shared with me the art of asking, so in that vein I will ask to carpool, if needed. I will use public transit, my bike (it is not a mountain bike, by the way) and will walk or run to meetings, events, work and to visit friends.

I really have no idea or preconceived notions of what the month of April will be like for me. As Southern California has the worst air quality in the United States, I thought I would do my part and reduce my carbon footprint in my neighborhood.

What are you doing for Earth Day? Will you move Beyond Sustainability?
