Hermosa Beach, the First City in LA County to Declare its Intent to Become Carbon Neutral!

Over the past few months we have been working with Dency Nelson and Joe Galliani, longtime activists and environmentalists, to understand the environmental and economic opportunities that exist for the City of Hermosa Beach. Joe had the idea of taking the Green Idea House concept and scaling to the city. Given Hermosa Beach is only 1.3 miles in diameter and has a very progressive Mayor, City Council and staff, this is the perfect testing ground for the “Green Idea City.” We rolled up our sleeves and went to work creating a proposal.

In addition we all sent letters to the paper in support of the bold, visionary step that our city has taken.

We are now in the process of meeting with school board members to introduce them to the benefits of the concept for our schools and our children.

Onward and upward!
