Bainbridge Islanders are helping to reduce climate pollution! 

Bainbridge Islanders have reduced 142 metric tons of climate pollution by completing simple actions in the Climate Smart Challenge - that’s equivalent to taking 32 gasoline-powered passenger vehicles off the road for one full year! We can make an even bigger impact by working together within our community, whether it’s challenging your friends and neighbors, or introducing the Challenge to groups you’re involved with. That’s why we’re calling on all Islanders to join our Climate Smart Team Leader cohort!

From October through December, we’ll be highlighting climate smart solutions for transportation, home energy, and more, and providing the resources and support to help you make the greatest impact before the end of the year. All you need is the passion for a Climate Smart Bainbridge and about an hour per week! Ready to get started? Register here to become a Climate Smart Team Leader!

Join the Challenge today! Simply follow the steps below:    

  1. Sign up for the Bainbridge Island Climate Smart Challenge.  
  2. Complete new actions and watch your carbon footprint decline.

  1. What is the Climate Smart Challenge?

Bainbridge Island has big climate action goals and we need your help! 

We’re working to reduce our greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 25% by 2025, and 90% by 2045, compared to 2014. Roughly 40% of U.S. GHG emissions come from five basic household activities: transportation choices, electricity use, heating, food choices, and waste. The great news is there are lots of ways you can take action to protect our environment, save money, and improve your health and the comfort of your home.

The Climate Smart Challenge makes it easy and fun to reduce your GHG emissions. You select the actions specific to your journey and lifestyle, track your progress, and watch your carbon footprint decline as you make changes at home. You can collaborate with your neighbors, share ideas and resources, and work towards your goals together.  

Together we can create a Climate Smart Bainbridge!
