Whether we think of it on a day-to-day basis or not, climate change affects us all, and it will continue to have a greater impact as time goes on. While at times it can feel overwhelming to figure out how we can make the best choices for the climate while running our businesses and living our lives, there are so many opportunities to both calm the overwhelm and choose options that are both good for the planet and save money. Join Kelly Klein, representative for the small business community on the Vermont Climate Council, and Alex Arnold, climate coach and host of The Quiet Activists online community, for a discussion about what Vermont is doing to support our businesses, our people, and the climate.————————————–
