Communities Shifting: Simple Choices Yield Environmental and Economic Benefits


Communities Shifting: Simple Choices Yield Environmental and Economic Benefits

April 4, 2012, Phoenix, AZ — Sustainable Communities AZ foundation organizes its inaugural event to be held at Paradise Valley Community Center, May 9, 2012 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM. This is their first community gathering with others to be held quarterly at various locations throughout the valley of the sun.

This event titled “Clean Living at Your Home” brings in experts to share information about common household products, services and environmentally friendly choices that are available to everyone.

This free, two hour event will include three knowledge filled presentations on environmental concerns and options for cleaning supplies, pest control and drycleaning. All the topics will be presented in easy to understand format with plenty of time to ask questions throughout the event. In addition there will be over 15 booths with local businesses providing information on their respective environmentally conscious products and services.

“It is a challenging situation right now. We often see advertising that promotes “environmentally safe” products or services, only to find out that some claims are not true (called “green washing”) or that the product simply does not work. With our busy schedules, people have less time to do their own product and company research, which leads to some consumers giving up on trying to do the right thing” explains Dan Fogel, Chairman of SCAZ. “SCAZ looks to change all this by doing the research and providing an avenue for consumers to find legitimate, high quality, environmentally safe products and services.”

Sustainable Communities AZ is an Arizona non-profit founded on the premise of being a resource to individuals in Arizona who are interested in living a more environmentally conscious life, but might not know where to begin. “Sustainability is providing for the needs of today without compromising the ability to provide for the needs of tomorrow. Many people don’t realize that they play an important role regarding the environment, the local economy and that sustainable choices often save money”, says Bill Clay, founder of SC-AZ.
