Reduce, reuse, refuse, recycle
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle – we want to pay moreattention to the first two when reducing our use and waste, both of which are key to addressing pollution and the energy use that is driving climate disruption.
How we're tackling the challenge
After the recent victories against pollution with the Albuquerque Clean & Green Ordinance and Bernalillo County we are stronger now more than ever in our collective workfor a clean environment. The future is looking bright for our youth.
