Cool Moms, Cool Planet in Seattle
Very cool. Really. This Seattle group has a really, uh, cool thing going. Neighborhood by neighborhood, mom by mom, they aim to cool the planet. Here's how they describe themselves:
CoolMom.org brings busy moms into the climate action network in three ways: through education, lifestyle change, and by supporting policies that mitigate global climate change. An important part of our work occurs at the grassroots level, with community-based activism in neighborhood CoolMom groups. Local groups share ideas, take action, and have fun fighting climate change together!
CoolMom.org unites moms to build a better future for our children. CoolMom.org encourages sustainable living practices in how families live, learn, work and play. We promote stewardship of the natural environment and seek to instill a conservation ethic in future generations.
I am often surprised by how many things are going on in Portland that I am completely and utterly unaware of - and not just dance clubs and other things from days gone by. So before I say, how come we don't have something like this in Portland, I'll ask you! Do we have anything like this in Portland? If now, don't you think we should?
