    350 Sacramento’s Legislative Team enters the summer legislative season at the Capitol supporting a range of bills connected to climate change.

  • Beyond Global Recycling Day

    Written by Sanju A. (and posted very late by Cat, but hey! It’s Earth month!) Global Recycling Day was on March 18th this year.

I wanted to know more about common misconceptions about recycling, where our recycling products […]

  • Why donate to 350 Sacramento?

    With the Big Day of Giving coming up on Thursday, May 6, we wanted to highlight some of our accomplishments. And in highlighting our accomplishments, we’re highlighting our donors and volunteers. Because without the generous help of 350 Sacramento’s awesome donors and volunteers, we wouldn’t be the biggest climate-focused organization in Sacramento. Without you, we […]

    Sacramento County CAP Update

    Thank you! To the fifty-three 350 Sacramento members and friends who used our comment tool to tell the County that its backward-looking draft CAP is not acceptable. The draft’s main (unsubstantiated) conclusion is that the County doesn’t have to do anything because other agency’s efforts will reduce emissions to below the legal requirement. 350 Sacramento […]

  • Earth Champions of Hollywood Park

    I won’t be the first or last to say this, but I love living in Hollywood Park. Is it the best neighborhood in Sacramento? Just kidding – don’t answer that. I don’t want to start any fights right now (and, trust me, you don’t want to start a fight you can’t win 😉). My neighbors […]

    Sac County’s CAP is Unacceptable.

    The County’s plan is seriously inadequate. After 9-1/2 years of delay, the CAP presents more vague promises for future action. We will push them – with your help. We’ve prepared a comment tool with guiding questions and prompts so you can say you want a strong CAP. We hope you’ll find inspiration in this tool, […]
