A Week of Climate Action
California Volunteers, Office of the Governor, along with other state and community leaders are highlighting real-world, practical opportunities to take climate action at home and in your community around 5 key climate themes:
Greening practices increase the cover of vegetation, which lowers carbon dioxide and improves human health. You can help increase tree cover and restore natural environments by planting trees, replacing lawns, and helping with restoration projects in community parks. Learn more
Exploring Energy Options
Reducing Organic Waste
California has climate goals to divert 75% of organic waste and send 20% of unsold, still-fresh food to those who need it. You can help reduce emissions and address food insecurity by composting your food or lawn clippings and donating surplus food to your local food bank. Learn more
Wildfire Preparation and Prevention
Climate change is intensifying and extending our fire season. Help reduce fire risk and protect your community by hardening your home to reduce fire impacts, creating defensible space around your home, and making a household safety plan. Learn more
To meet our climate goals and protect our communities we need to dramatically cut back water use in California. Get “water-smart” by turning off the faucet while brushing your teeth or shaving, washing laundry or dishes with full-loads, and planting drought-resistant vegetation. Learn more
