"Cooler Smarter: Practical Steps for Low-Carbon Living" is TransportiCA's May 2019 Boo

SACRAMENTO, Calif. – With its mission to advance systems thinking and the Triple Bottom Line, the California Green Academy (“CalGreen”), and its sustainable transport blog “TransportiCA,” are proud to announce Cooler Smarter: Practical Steps for Low-Carbon Living, as May 2019’s Book Club selection. Cooler Smarter, unlike other publications, provides numerous easy-to-accomplish tasks for decreasing your carbon footprint, including a system for reducing your immediate impact by 20%, and many other long-term and powerful measures. Commissioned by the Union of Concerned Scientists, Cooler Smarter is authored by Seth Shulman, Jeff Deyette, Brenda Ekwurzel, David Friedman, Margaret Mellon, John Rogers, and Suzanne Shaw. “TransportiCA is incredibly proud to feature Cooler Smarter, and is confident the book is, not only a must read for everyone, but at this time of the year, especially for students. As many conclude their studies this, and next month, they will be departing institutions that have in place essential systems for sustainable living. However, as students return home, they may lack such sustainable features, and Cooler Smarter is just the handy guide for students to learn of, and implement, these features in their own home,” says Greg Justice, TransportiCA founder and CalGreen’s Chief Sustainability Officer. As with every monthly Book Club selection, readers can take part in a contest, with three questions about the authors’ professional lives. May’s winner receives, not only their own copy of Cooler Smarter, but a $25 Union of Concerned Scientists’ gift membership. Founded in 2015, TransportiCA is CalGreen’s flagship program, focusing on the promotion and education of sustainable transport: “Mobility meeting the Triple Bottom Line.” TransportiCA's most popular feature is the monthly Book Club, with every publication featured embodying the elements of the Triple Bottom Line and the very foundation of sustainable transport – social responsibility, financial security, and ecological stewardship.
