Living Lean & Green Workshops

Our goal is to promote green living and inspire people to reduce their carbon footprint by providing green tips and offering workshops based on the book, The Low Carbon Diet, A 30 Day Program to Lose 5000 Pounds, by David Gershon.

Our individual carbon reduction actions add up!


About the Workshops

Go green with this fun, interactive workshop. In five sessions, you will learn dozens of strategies to reduce your household's carbon footprint to save energy, money and the planet.  By making simple changes to actions you take every day, you will dramatically reduce your environmental impact, shedding more than 5,000 lbs of CO2 emissions.  Join with a growing number of citizens nationwide who have decided to be part of the global warming solution.

According to the Central Indiana Environmental Education Fund,  434 Central Indiana households reduced their collective carbon footprint by over 2.5 million pounds of CO2 as a direct result of the Living Lean & Green workshops.

The Living Lean and Green Workshops conducted at Carmel City Hall and the Carmel Clay Library resulted in over 124,000 lbs of CO2 reduction.  Thanks to all participants for your green efforts!
