Shrinking Big Foot

BGFT_TYPEFOOTShrinking BigFoot is kicking off in schools this week.  It is a really fun workshop for elementary school kids to empower students to shrink their carbon footprints with easy, everyday actions. Check out the “preview” video here. Seattle City Light and SDOT created the program.  Did you know that driving is the largest source of global warming in Seattle?  It is responsible for almost 60% of Seattle residents’ “carbon footprint”.  SDOT partnered with CoolMom, a nonprofit group of moms concerned about climate change, to make fortune tellers for kids highlighting their cool carbon future.  Remember those fortune tellers you used to make out of paper FortuneTellerFold? You can download the fortune tellers here and here to make your own. For a kids’ Top 10 list of tips to reduce your carbon footprint, visit our Way to Go Seattle! Shrinking Bigfoot webpage.

Did you know if every Seattlite drove about 20 miles less per week we could meet our goals to reduce GHG?  Here are some ideas of ways to drive 20 miles less per week.  It all adds up to make a difference.
