The purpose of this campaign is to educate and inform the Kodiak community about how to reduce energy consumption, recycle resources and products and reuse rather than discard materials.
ENERGY STAR is a joint program of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy helping us all save money and protect the environment through energy efficient products and practices. Americans, with the help of ENERGY STAR, saved enough energy in 2007 alone to avoid greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to those from 27 million cars — all while saving $16 billion on their utility bills. Looking for new household products? Look for ones that have earned the ENERGY STAR. They meet strict energy efficiency guidelines set by the EPA and US Department of Energy.

The purpose of this campaign is to educate and inform the Kodiak community about how to reduce energy consumption, recycle resources and products and reuse rather than discard materials. Our goal is to define terms such as “carbon footprint”, offer useful tips for energy conservation that all of us can use, promote responsible use of our resources, offer suggestions for sustainable development and recognize national, state and most importantly local initiatives and programs addressing sustainability issues.
Sustainable Development: Sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.” From the time sustainable development was first endorsed at the UN General Assembly in 1987, the parallel concept of education to support sustainable development has also been explored. Research shows that basic education is key to a nation’s ability to develop and achieve sustainability targets. Ultimately we believe a better educated community will better address it’s sustainable health for future generations.
