What is a Neighborhood Blitz?
A Neighborhood Blitz is an event that grew from a pilot project and has been adopted by many
Pittsburgh neighborhoods. The event entails Black and
Gold City Goes Green volunteers going door-to-door handing out energy- and water
saving tools such as CFL light bulbs, smart power strips, and LED nightlights. These tools help folks save energy and money
in their homes and in turn reduce their carbon dioxide emissions.
We want to extend a huge thank-you to the volunteers who helped make our Mt. Washington Neighborhood Blitz so successful despite the dreary weather. With their help we delivered 137 bags to neighbors in Mt. Washington which helped avoid more than half-a-million pounds of CO2 from being emitted. Way cool for just a couple hours of their time!
When is the next Neighborhood Blitz?
Our next blitz is tentatively scheduled for September 2014 in Elliott. Stay tuned for more information about ways you can get involved!
