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.


In less than one year since its founding, CarbonfreeDC has hosted over 40 events (workshops, tours, volunteer projects) that have given our now 800+ members tangible, step-by-step solutions to reducing their carbon footprint. We have also led a successful Low Carbon Diet Program and launched the Green Team Network to help people start green teams at their workplaces.

CarbonfreeDC member James M. writes:

“This is a wonderful group doing meaningful work. It’s members come from all sorts of backgrounds, live all across the region, and are dedicated to bringing environmentally friendly change to Washington, DC beginning with local communities.”

In order to seriously ramp up our efforts for bold practical action right here in Washington, we’re going to need some serious resources.
