...from the bloomingdale garden club.....

“The Nation’s Capitol Among the Green Guide’s Ten Greenest Cities in America ”

No, that isn’t a current news headline. But, it could be one you’ll see in the future. Join other citizens of like mind at a meeting at 7:00 p.m. at Windows Café & Market next Wednesday, September 27th to begin putting together an agenda for the greening of DC using Bloomingdale as the proverbial lab rat.

Citizens of Green cities can boast of cleaner air, water, and all the other things that go to make up a healthy ecosystem. Green cities also provide safe, reliable, and non-polluting public transportation options, walkable streets, loads of green space, broad access to and use of renewable energy resources. They also seek to pioneer the use of green building techniques in public buildings and to encourage green building among industries, businesses, and private citizens through effective legislation, building codes, and targeted funding opportunities.

Being Green can be all that has been mentioned and so much more. Every citizen of Bloomingdale wants and deserves a green neighborhood and a green city for themselves, their children, and for future generations of Bloomingdalians.

Have your say about what you’d like to see and learn from others as we begin the work of charting a greener path for DC at 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday, September 27th at Windows Café and Market. For more information contact Cassandra Costley at 202-462-3737 or sandysan55@hotmail.com.
