VEIC Makes Finals in Brewing A Better World Contest

Thank you to all the loyal Smart Growth Vermont supporters who voted for our application in Green Mountain Coffee Roasters’ Changing Climate Change Competition. While we posted 441 votes for third place (beating out Chicago and breathing down the necks of both Brooklyn and Mexico) we were not selected as a finalist for the grant. But the Vermont Energy Investment Corporation was!
Go to the Justmeans.com site to post your vote for their entry in the “Empowering Individual Action” category before midnight tonight, April 2. They are proposing a “big hairy audacious goal” of offsetting the carbon footprint of their business and their employees by 10,000 fold in 20 years. “The personal decisions we make – the foods we eat, where we go on vacation, the cars we drive – have great impacts.” They hope their model will inspire other businesses to adopt similar projects.
