CarbonfreeDC holds workshops to educate locals on how to reduce their carbon footprint. The organization also is engaged in a weatherization project of low-income homes.

  • This is accomplished by bringing together individuals, businesses, organizations and local government to:
  • Learn about local opportunities to reduce carbon emissions
  • Increase the adoption of renewable energy in the DC area
  • Cultivate volunteer-lead sustainable office initiatives
  • Galvanize citizens to share knowledge and resources to achieve our goals

The DC Metro area has the unique opportunity to position itself as a region at the forefront in combating climate change. We're taking the lead on making this a reality.
