The research is in and there are ways to make a difference. In our October issue, we cover the steps to ease the impacts of global warming from some of the top experts in the field (page 18). Our local efforts in the Blue Ridge region include a profile of the Roanoke Save a Ton program (page 10). We are sponsors for the Cabell Brand Center Sustainable Energy Workshop on Friday, October 18 at Greenfield, Virginia Western Community College campus in Daleville (news brief on page 6). The opportunities for green travel in the region are included in the Blue Ridge Green Travel section (page 14). The community resource guide and calendar connect readers to professionals and events in our region to improve health and reduce the human impact on our Planet Earth.
