Join the People's Climate March for Global Climate Justice Oct.14

Help be a part of building on last year's successful People's Climate March. Meet at Seattle City Hall at 5 p.m. March at 5:30 p.m. to Occidental Park.

The time for action on climate change is NOW. Join a diverse coalition of communities of color, workers, immigrants, activists and everyday folk on October 14 as we build upon last year's wildly successful People’s Climate March in New York to send a message that will be heard from Seattle to Paris: Our communities are united in the fight against climate change.

Climate change affects low-income and communities of color disproportionately, and a just transition away from fossil fuels means making sure that no one gets left behind, especially the communities most affected.

Gather at 5:00 p.m. at City Hall Plaza to make climate ribbons, and then march at 5:30 p.m. sharp to Occidental Park. There will be speakers and video projections of people from across the state talking about how climate change is affecting their lives, what their doing about it, and what their hopes for the future are. There will also be an interview tent set up to record the stories of those present. Our world is changing faster than anyone expected, and our voices must be heard in Paris and beyond. Please join us!

CoolMoms Car Seat Recycling Featured in ParentMap!

ParentMap reports on CoolMom's efforts to keep kids safe while offering families a local green choice for used baby seats.

We couldn't be prouder of CoolMom Program Managers Kimberly Christensen and Brooke Doyle for their relentless energy in helping to bring a car seat recycling program to the Seattle metro area. The two were recently featured in a ParentMap article on their hard work breathing new life into old car seats.

Here's a teaser on the ParentMap article below. You can click here to read the entire article:

Brooke Graham Doyle was working toward combatting climate change as the North Seattle coordinator of the environmental nonprofit CoolMom when she encountered a sustainability problem of her own: Old car seats.

“At that point, I had three kids in car seats,” Doyle says. “They were these big pieces of plastic, and I didn’t know what to do with them.”

When representatives from the environmental advocacy group Zero Waste Washington came to a CoolMom meeting to speak about recycling household electronics, Doyle and the CoolMoms saw the potential for a solution.

Find out more about car seat recycling at our program page and on our sister site.
