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
