On July 21st, the Sustainability Division will host its third webinar in its Sustainability Brown Bag Lunch series. County employees are invited to join and learn more about ways to have a sustainable lifestyle with programs the County has to offer.

July’s Brown Bag will feature Energy Analyst, Javier Saucedo. Saucedo will talk about home weatherization and heat, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC). Attendees will learn how to keep their homes cool from the summer heat, how to protect themselves from hazards like wildfire smoke, and about 3C-REN’s DIY Home Energy Toolkit.

In past webinars, the Sustainability Brown Bag Lunch series highlighted building efficiency programs to make the switch to all-electric easier, commuter benefits offered to County employees, and an overview of the Sustainability Division. Future presentations will touch on topics of conserving water, reducing waste usage, and benefits available for purchasing an electric vehicle.
