“Creating a Green Footprint” Workshop Coming to Lexington in April

If you have ever wondered how you, your business or your community could reduce greenhouse gas emissions daily, there is a workshop designed for you. KY EXCEL, Kentucky’s environmental leadership program, has organized a free “Creating a Green Footprint Workshop” to be held on April 26, 2017, in Lexington, Ky.

During this half-day event, the Division of Compliance Assistance (DCA), Kentucky Pollution Prevention Center, Lexington-Fayette Urban County Government and the Division of Forestry will share their knowledge and expertise. Participants will leave knowing the basics of how to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and prevent pollution from everyday activities through heating and cooling or planting a tree. Participants will not become experts, but will gain a general overview in order to create a green footprint. Each attendee will leave the workshop with a free sapling to plant.

Lexington-Fayette Urban County Government, a KY EXCEL Leader member, will be hosting the workshop from 1–4:30 p.m. EDT, at the Tate Building, 1500 Leestown Road in Lexington. Please see the workshop’s agenda for additional details. For more information about KY EXCEL, please contact Robyn Whitted at 502-782-6476.
