We had a great art show opening for Grains of Time at Redamte Coffee House. There was a large attendance and a whole lot of interest! Much thanks to Redamte and their great staff, the artists, and all those in attendance, including partners and friends from Forest Products Lab, Dane County Parks, RC&D, the UW Art Department, and of course, Sustainable Atwoodians!

â€œCarbon Nationâ€ is a business film, a national defense film, an energy-reductio n film. The heroes in the film are pragmatists. â€œCarbon Nationâ€ is a documentary movie about climate change solutions. Even if you doubt the severity of the impact of climate change or just don’t buy it at all, this is still a compelling and relevant film that illustrates how solutions to climate change also address other social, economic, and national security issues. You’ll meet a host of entertaining and endearing characters along the way.
“For the Price of a Cup of Coffee” is a 15-minute documentary examining the life cycle of a paper cup and the repercussions of a society reliant on convenience. Why are fewer than 1% of coffeeshop patrons bringing their own cups? Why do we have so much garbage, and where does it go? What is the true cost of a disposable culture? This film is full of information that all consumers should know about the products that we use everyday, and the steps we need to make towards a more sustainable world. Also, Climate Wisconsin short, “Extreme Heat.”
Creating awareness, sparking conversation, empowering change.
