A note from the North Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce’s Environmental Initiatives Committee:

You’re not the only one who feels like keeping cool and hydrated has been extra difficult this summer. According to the World Meteorological Organization, June was the hottest ever, and July has at least equaled if not surpassed the hottest month in recorded history. There are a number of ways individuals and businesses can both cope with extreme heat and also take measures to conserve energy that will minimize your carbon footprint and in turn also ensure possible brownouts are avoided.

As always, the Environmental Initiatives Committee would like to hear from you. Contact us at [email protected] with any questions, issues, or to receive updates on upcoming programs and events.
