Make Every Week Climate Week!
Utah Climate Week is a chance to reconnect with our communities and address climate change together. It’s a reminder to think about the many ways we can make more sustainable choices every week. By making our homes more energy efficient, driving less, reducing and recycling more, and eating locally grown and plant-based diets, we can reduce our household carbon footprints. Many of the events during Utah Climate Week will help you learn more about how to act on climate change.
There are still ways to get involved with Utah Climate Week by hosting an event, signing up as a Utah Climate Week restaurant, or attending one of the many events going on during the week.
We’ll see you there!
