About
The Jefferson County Sustainability Commission is holding its first-ever Summer Carbon Weight Loss Challenge in an effort to track and measure the carbon reduction impact that a community can make over a two-month period when we choose to take planet-heathy choices every day. We hope that by participating, everyone will discover new ways to create a more sustainable future for the next generation. A huge thank you to Resort 2 Kindness (R2K) for making our inaugural event possible by providing financial sponsorship!
