Rockland, Maine — The Green Sneakers Project, a community action initiative working with homeowners locally and across the state to minimize the impact of energy use on the environment, will join with 350.org in a Day of Global Witness. Green Sneakers Midcoast coordinator Nancy Glassman and Andy Burt of Maine Partners for Cool Communities, invites those who have participated in the Green Sneakers Project or have made energy-saving changes in their homes to witness between May 5-13.
Glassman said, “If you live in Belfast, Camden, Rockport or Rockland and have had a walk-thru to pinpoint energy-saving strategies or have taken steps on your own to save energy in your home, Green Sneakers wants you to simply request a bright yellow lawn sign announcing your participation and display the sign by your home for one week, May 5 to May 13. The sign will tell your neighbors that you care about the environment, the planet and the price they are paying for gasoline and fuel oil.”
Green Sneakers will create an online map with dots at all the locations on the Midcoast where Green Sneakers walk-thrus and-or energy saving improvements have been conducted. Anyone who has worked with Green Sneakers or has made energy-saving changes to their homes can put their house on the map and witness for a more careful stewardship of the planet.
To participate, call or email Green Sneakers to request a lawn sign. If you have not received a Green Sneakers efficiency walk-thru, but have made energy-saving changes in your home and want to join the Day of Global Witness, contact Green Sneakers at 207-322-9147 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
