We are so proud to announce our
Together We Shine: Community Solar Campaign Launch Event
No sun? No roof? No Rebates?… No Problem!!
Can we build a community solar project?
Can we put together people who couldn’t otherwise get solar, with their own solar panels somewhere else? We’re going to find out and do it!
In light of inaction to address climate change, and with the local change to off shore wind 7-10 years away, all of us must act together now to displace fossil fuels’ pollution, clean our communities, and spearhead the coming renewable energy economy that benefits everyone.
The BYO Bag LB team cleaned up some unbelievably trash and plastic polluted bay marsh land this past Saturday. Led by Scott Bochner, with the help of Operation Splash, Surfrider Foundation- Central Long Island Chapter, Sludge Stoppers Task Force, All Our Energy, SunPower by EmPower Solar, and thanks to City of Long Beach, New York for support, we made a big difference in the cleanliness of one section of marsh.
Some of the brave volunteers from our Marsh/Bay clean up. In a short time, we pulled about 20 full size garbage bags of mostly plastic and styrofoam debris off of about 500 feet of marsh.

Scott Bochner, up to his hip boots in debris cleaned off the Marsh.
Hoses, foam seats, lots of #plastic and #styrofoamcup pieces, #plasticbottles, cigarette butts, and the dreaded shredded #plasticbag debris.
The dreaded, shredded, plastic bag debris. Yuck!

Why is our movement growing and only getting stronger?
We need your power now to continue building momentum, raising awareness and most of all, helping everyone transition to a reusable bag culture that eliminates single-use plastic bag pollution.
We are really loving seeing the bumper stickers and window clings going up all over, and hope you will display your support, too.
Stay tuned- more dates and events will be coming.
