E-M:/ Green Lunch Seminar in Royal Oak WEDNESDAY!!!

Greening Oakland County One Lunch At A Time

Royal Oak, MI- Does the thought of building eight new dirty coal plants in Michigan make your blood boil?  Are you frustrated that Michigan is losing jobs because we don't require that a portion of our energy come from renewable resources?  Then join us and find out what is being done to make sure that Michigan has a clean energy future.

Join Clean Water Action, Sierra Club and Bean & Leaf Café (106 S. Main St.) for our Green Lunch Series on Wednesday June 25th from 12:00pm to 1:00pm to learn more about how Michigan can pave the way to a clean energy future.  And find out how you can get more involved with our Energy Independence and No Coal campaigns.

This summer our Green Lunch Series is expanding to Royal Oak!  Bean & Leaf Café is our new partner.  They will be hosting our Green Lunch Series at their Royal Oak Café.  Our mission is to provide Oakland County residents with the information they need to become even better stewards of the environment.  The lunches will be held the last Wednesday of the month from 12:00pm-1:30pm.
