Green Jobs & Sustainability this Weekend!

This is one of those weekends where the options for environment-focused activities abound! And according to the current forecast, the weather is planning to cooperate with those of us who enjoy spending as much time as possible outdoors.

First up is 1Sky of Washington’s Green Jobs For All Day of Action on Saturday, September 27. (Earth Ministry is a 1Sky partner organization.) Click on the highlighted text to see a list of specific events in the Puget Sound area. This day of action is meant to highlight the need for building a green economy and to show candidates that this is an important issue for many Americans.

Next on the agenda should be a trip to the Sustainable Ballard festival, held from 11am-5pm both Saturday and Sunday in Ballard Commons Park. There will be stations to sew your own reusable tote bags, apply for your Undriver’s License, learn about reducing home energy use, and much more! Admission is free, so take the bus, ride your bike, or walk to Ballard for a weekend of environmentally-friendly fun.
