Only in Madison




Only in Madison would the minor league ball team have a "Sustainability Night" at the ballpark. The stadium will be purchasing only renewable energy (solar and wind) from August 2008 onwards, there is a concession stand that serves all local food (plenty of non-local too), and folks of every stripe pack the stadium. We had fun talking about rain barrels and Mpowering Madison. Click on over to get some great ideas on easy ways to reduce carbon dioxide emissions, save energy and water. If you live in Madison or want to start a similar program, sign the pledge!

Along the lines of sustainability education, our friend recently wrote a book to help kids understand the importance of "Reduce, Reuse, Recycle." Think Outside the Can is currently only available online and would make a great gift! We are so excited for her!!!
