What we do is
Address Pollution in under-resourced communities
Healthy High-Efficiency homes
that contribute to
a society centered on Justice.
Address Environmental Justice, as it relates to Climate Change
and the threat to children caused by
the location of pollution hazards in marginalized communities,
by promoting one of the central solutions:
healthy lead-free carbon neutral homes.
While the global problem of Climate Change threatens every person on this planet, the biggest local environmental threat is the alarming rates of lead exposure among children in North Minneapolis.
On September 4th, 2015, Carbon Zero Home signed the contract for its first rehab project, a 123 year old brick house in north Minneapolis. We completed the project in February of 2017. We are now putting our energy into reducing the lead exposure rate among children on the north side of our city. We will pursue more clean energy homes in the future, but we feel the lead problem in Minneapolis needs immediate attention.
