    I will contact 2 congress people or representatives to advocate for public policy that protects forests and the enforcement of existing anti-logging laws, as well as the rights of local people to protect and restore the land in their communities.

    I will Practice the "5 Rs" — refuse, reduce, reuse, repurpose, and recycle — to reduce my waste more than I can with just recycling alone.

    Contamination prevents what is recyclable from being recycled. I will research and recycle all materials that are accepted by local haulers or drop stations in my community, making sure to not contaminate recyclables with non-recyclables.

    Be more inclusive! We seem to target keeping the wealthy, white people happy, obviously, and that needs to change! North Asheville is very white and secluded. It is sort of it’s own little bubble of wealthy, Simply Southern wearing, white people.

    We can tackle the affordable housing problem and raise the minimum wage so people can afford to stay in the green neighborhoods. We can use climate change as an opportunity to provide jobs to make the city more sustainable.
