City of Hermosa Beach

Beacon Participant Profile

“Sustainability 
involves
 many
 small 
actions 
over
 the
 course of
 each
 day 
and
 week:

 using
 a 
little
 less 
water, 
wearing 
a sweater,
 walking
 or
 biking
 to 
a
 local
 destination
 once 
a week,
 turning
 off
 the
 lights,
 bringing
 a
 reusable
 bag, recycling.  Contributing to a common goal can be fun and provide a sense of community and purpose.

… Bringing issues to the ‘home court’ through on the ground demonstration and involvement of local leaders can have a significant impact when asking people to make a commitment to change.” -City of Hermosa Beach Sustainability Plan
