Car Free Partners meeting:

Location: the Santa Barbara Inn, 901 E. Cabrillo Blvd.  

Our mission: to encourage car free, carefree travel to and around Santa Barbara for cleaner air and a healthier planet.

Our partnership: we are a cooperative project, founded in 1998 and led by Santa Barbara County Air Pollution Control District, with support from the City of Santa Barbara, Amtrak California®, and more than 100 businesses, agencies, organizations and individuals

In the meantime, local businesses are encouraged to look into these opportunities:

1)      Green Business Program of Santa Barbara County. Kickoff workshops for a new cohort on September 20 (Santa Maria) and September 21 (Santa Barbara). Details: http://www.greenbizsbc.org/green-business-academy-workshop-dates-for-fall-2017/

2)      CoolCalifornia Small Business Awards. Application is open now. Details: http://www.coolcalifornia.org/small-business-awards

 

We also wanted to share exciting news from the Air Pollution Control District. A bill was introduced today in Congress to create a recognition program highlighting shipping companies that voluntarily slow down in the Santa Barbara Channel, reducing air pollution and providing safer conditions for the whales we all love so much.
