Elaine commented on The Sunnyvale Urban Forest

Hi Lance A ! Wondering if you knew there was a community group called Sunnyvale Urban Forest Advocates. They have been leading tree walks ad tours of the urban forest in Sunnyvale. Might be a great collaboration for your idea. Check them out at:

Wondering if you have other ideas or specific tactics on how we can get more people in Sunnyvale excited about trees and to want to plant them!


Elaine commented on Straws Suck!

Hi Kim Jelfs -- any thoughts on how we might also change people's behavior so they don't use plastic straws at all? People hardly use straws at home and I wonder why we've become accustomed to using them when dining out. Wonder if there are ways to change behavior too. Any thoughts on that to add/enhance the Straws Suck idea?


Elaine commented on Green Warriors in Training

Love to see the collaboration between this idea and Green Ops Homestead . The City has worked with Homestead and Fremont, as well as Sunnyvale Middle, Columbia and Cupertino Middle and each of their schools Green Teams. We've have great achievements with those teams. And, would love to see them continue and spread to all schools. Any specific thoughts on how to help the Green Team's thrive and how that can be sustained over time?
