The Town hosted a Carbon Café on January 7, 2009 to discuss the Low Carbon Diet, which is a workbook created by David Gershon that walks you through a 30 day program to loose 5,000 pounds of carbon by making simple lifestyle changes. There are 24 options you can choose from with corresponding carbon reductions to get to the 5,000 pounds As with any diet, a strong support group is essential, so we created EcoTeams composed of Dedham residents that will offer guidance and support. Each Eco-Team consists of 5 to 8 households.
If you are interested in joining an EcoTeam or creating one of your own, please contact Virginia LeClair, Environmental Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org or 781-751-9213.
The Low Carbon Diet workbook can be purchased at the Blue Bunny in Dedham Square, at Mass Climate Action Network www.massclimateaction.net or through the Empowerment Institute at www.empowermentinstitute.net/lcd.
