New Screening of Bag It Movie with the Village of Sea Cliff

On to 2018!!!


What a 2017 its been! Now we build, for a big 2018.

From renewable energy advocacy and expansion, to climate actions and protection of our local environment, we did so much together with you.
And we’ve done it all through the incredible efforts of our volunteer teams. Your support provides the materials and supplies that they need to make change a reality.

As 2017 began, we built community.

Our volunteers reached out to over 150 merchants about the Long Beach Bag law- work no one else would do.
We turned out 80% of the comments on the LIPA & PSEG LI revised plan to include more renewables.
Then we put our fundraising efforts into machine washable reusable bags for those who needed them, instead of our operations…
Because it all needed to be DONE.
None would have happened without our team.



We helped kick off the Long Beach Bag Law with help from so many on Earth Day.
The next week we helped 1000 successfully join the People’s Climate March in Long Beach with our partner organizations.
With those partners, we organized the LI Climate Summit, where over 200 attendees workshopped on ways to address climate change.


With help from our friends at EmPower Solar we launched a far-reaching talk on Long Island community solar.
We helped drive public turnout to hear about the Off Shore Wind Farm off Long Beach
Our Nassau-County-wide reusable bag campaign kicked off in Sea Cliff and Lynbrook, including building teams of local volunteers.
We joined in the Long Beach edition of International Coastal Clean Up day with many incredible partners.


We brought together many partners for the local screening of “Ocean Frontiers 3”, with an amazing panel discussion.
Our Sea Cliff Team made huge strides meeting 600 petition signers in one day, with additional events now involving the Village of Sea Cliff.
We helped remove over 300 pounds of recyclables & trash with the Town of Hempstead at Lido Town Beach
We raised another 900 bags donated from companies, making the total given away this year to over 1600 so everyone can bring their own bag!!

As we go into the new year, support is needed for All Our Energy’s important work to continue into 2018. As a 501c3 organization, all donations to All Our Energy are tax deductible.

Thank you for being there with us.

Sea Cliff Reusable Bag Campaign November 2017

Our Sea Cliff reusable bag campaign team have been super active, getting school-wide screenings of Bag It shown this week, preparing for our first local beach clean up, involving local officials, producing some major art and educational efforts, like these Groovy Solutions showing you already have many plastic bags every week you CANNOT avoid, that you can reuse, and that you probably don’t need single use shopping bags for pet waste. Thanks to Lorraine, John, Lori, Laura, Leslie, Amy, Amy, Judy, Kate, and everyone else making change!
We work with some amazing organizations who are making change, too! Thanks to Food and Water Watch, Move Forward LI, Sane Energy Project, NY Communities for Change, NYPIRG, and many others working for a just transition to a renewable energy economy.

As part of our continuing efforts to eliminate needless single use bags, we were busy this weekend!

At Sea Cliff’s Annual “Minimart” town-wide street festival, our volunteers collected over 600 signatures for our petition asking The Village of Sea Cliff to become a reusable bag culture.

We also launched sales of our reusable bag fundraiser with A-mazing Sea-Cliff-Centric art By Lori Pappas. Of course, anyone may donate for these high quality, shopping size, machine washable reusable bags that fold right up into a little pouch so you never have to forget your bag again!

Thanks to our team – Lori, Tina, Karen, Lorraine, John, Amy, Joan, Neda, Iris, and Joanne for helping make such a big impact, meeting so many new friends, and getting word out!

Also – a big thank you to Tracy from The Creative Arts Studio of Sea Cliff for hosting us and putting us on the map!!
