Shift Campaign: Take Action Now!
What is Shift?
80% of Fort Collins' community members support climate action and want simple, easy actions they can take to do their part. Shift is dedicated to mobilizing our community to reach our climate action goals of a 20% reduction below 2005 levels in 2020; 80% below by 2030; and to be carbon neutral by 2050.
Learn how to Make A Shift
Shift Your Laundry
Take control of your electric bill and save approximately 50 cents per load by drying your laundry during off-peak hours and even consider line drying your clothing whenever possible to save even more. When you use electricity is as important as how much you use. Click the link below to learn more about how you can save!
Shift Your Mug
Using a reusable mug and recycling old cups can save tons of paper and plastic waste from being thrown into our landfill every year. Don't forget to bring your reusable mug with you when you grab your next coffee or tea. Click the link below if you want to learn more about how to reuse and recycle here in Fort Collins.
Shift Your Ride
Save your gas money for what matters most. Fort Collins has over 60 miles of paved bike trails and around 200 miles of bike lanes. Biking to work regularly can save you money on gas and car maintenance and bonus - it's also good for your health! Check out Open Streets on September 29th!
