I spoke to a local group that meets monthly to discuss ways to go green.

There are many groups in Louisville that meet to discuss sustainability issues. I attended my first meeting on Dec. 2 of the Louisville Sustainability Forum. The purpose of the forum is to promote sustainability for Louisville, create change and provide a place for discussion of all things green. The forum meets monthly on the first Wednesday from noon to 1:45 p.m. at The Barn (1924 Newburg Road, directly behind the Passionist Monastery). Coffee is provided by Heine Brothers -- a special treat.
The meetings include three five-minute presentations, and then the main speaker gives a presentation. I was this month's featured presenter. I gave a talk about my trip to Churchill, Manitoba, to discuss what I learned about polar bears and how climate change is affecting them. The five minute presenters included Mark Sanders, who invented a green system for flushing toilets, Larry Horton, owner of the newly opened Horton's Eco-Store and Brent Tinnell, who was promoting bicycling in the Louisville area.
I recommend this group to anyone open to new ideas about how to fix our planet's environmental problems. For information, email LSF_Announce@yahoo.com
