This could mean riding a bike to work, utilizing a self-container for take-outs, selling locally sourced foods, composting waste, or something else entirely.

This project, as part of the Our Valley What’s Next community visioning and development initiative, aims to help reduce the community’s carbon footprint while having fun at the same time. Participating businesses and individuals will receive attention on the Tread Lightly Friday Facebook page. There also will be classes held to educate businesses on how they can “tread lightly” and save money at the same time.
