Trump’s decision to pull the United States from the Paris Climate Accord is a disastrous blow to our planet. Pulling out of the climate agreement with every other country in the world is crime against humanity that will lead to the deaths of millions people through food shortages related to climate change.
At Big Reuse #Wearestillin. We will continue to support climate action to meet the Paris Agreement. We will renew our efforts at a local and state level. Most important decisions on energy usage and material waste are made locally and at the state.
Pittsburgh’s mayor rebuffed Trump’s effort to use his city as a reason to leave the accord and joined 9 states, hundreds of U.S. cities and 1000s of businesses to commit locally to meet the goals of the Paris Climage Accord with ambitious, locally relevant solutions to climate change. Mayor Deblasio has pledged NYC to reduce 80% in GHG emissions by 2050.
The efforts of local government is vital, but the movement is driven by the people. Big Reuse is still in in is committed to enacting positive environmental change through waste reduction. We strongly believe that keeping materials out of the landfill and promoting reclamation over new production can put a dent in our climate impact.
We’ve got a constant supply of donated materials coming through our Reuse Centers, and we can always use a hand moving and organizing salvaged goods. If you’re interested in supporting creative, local environmentalism, please consider volunteering with Big Reuse. Climate change is a global problem, but its solution will come from community-based action!
