"Sustainable"

U Street NW. (Luis Gomez Photos)

Sustainable U has partnered with renewable energy provider Clean Currents to offer U Street residences and businesses added incentives for going green.

Starting last April and continuing through June 21, Clean Currents is donating $250 for each U Street business and $30 for each U Street home that signs up to purchase wind power as its source of electricity generation. Sustainable U will use this money to purchase new tree boxes for the 14th and U Street area.

Pepco customers have the option of choosing an alternative power supplier for their electricity. Clean Currents, which delivers renewable energy through wind power generated electricity, is one of the options through Pepco.

Next Sustainable U Meeting

The next meeting of Sustainable U is at 7 pm on Thursday, May 23, at the Paul Laurence Dunbar Apartments, 2001 15th Street, NW. The meeting will evaluate how the businesses and community we’re doing on their Clean Currents challenge and how we plan to make the most of the final month.

Sustainable U is a community-led initiative that strives to increase the availability of and participation in green living and working options in the 14th and U corridor.

To participate in the Sustainable U Clean Currents challenge, consumers should have their Pepco account number available and talk to Clean Currents representatives, and indicate they are a part of Sustainable U.

Sustainable U has partnered with renewable energy provider Clean Currents to offer U Street residences and businesses added incentives for going green. Starting this past Monday (Earth Day) and continuing through June 21, Clean Currents will donate $250 for each U-Street business and $30 for each U-Street home that enrolls for its services. Sustainable U will use this money to purchase new tree boxes for the 14th and U Street area.

Brianne Nadeau, former ANC-1B commissioner and 2014 candidate for the Ward 1 DC Council seat, founded Sustainable U in 2012. The community organization works to promote environmentally conscious development in the 14th and U Street and encourage civic engagement around the effort. To learn more about Sustainable U, local residents can attend the next meeting, scheduled for 7 pm on Wednesday, April 24, at the Paul Laurence Dunbar Apartments (2001 15th Street NW).

Interested business or home owners should visit the Clean Currents website or call 301-754-0430 (x3) and note that they are participating in the Sustainable U challenge. Local businesses SweetGreen, Busboys and Poets, and The Heights are among Clean Current’s customers. Sustainable U and Clean Currents are hoping to prompt U-street residents and business owners to start using clean energy and take advantage of the automatic contribution to new tree boxes in their neighborhood.

There is still time to drop off clothing as part of a month-long clothing drive for Goodwill that ends Saturday. You can deliver clothing from 11 am to 1:30 pm just east of Logan Circle.

The clothing drive was coordinated by Live Green and Repax and will end at Saturday afternoon’s Green Rush Scavenger Hunt. The event begins at 2:30 pm at Logan Circle is part of 2012 Earth Day celebrations in DC. (See Earth Day Starts Saturday with Green Rush Scavenger Hunt.)

The clothing drive concludes a month-long drive by Live Green and Repax. Since mid-March, DC residents have been dropping off clothes in bins at green businesses and apartment buildings throughout the city as part of the FWD: Your Fashion Clothing Drive.

More than 5,000 lbs of donations have been collected, making this drive DC’s largest community clothing drive in support of Goodwill. As part of Live Green and Clean Currents’ Green Rush, an eco-themed scavenger hunt, participants will help to deliver the donations to Goodwill’s truck.

About Saturday’s Green Rush Scavenger Hunt

Green Rush is sponsored by two local entities — Live Green and Clean Currents (which sells wind power). Green Rush begins at Logan Circle at 2:30 pm and ends with a party at 5:30 pm at Liv at 2001 11th Street NW. (You can also get more information on the Live Green Facebook page.)

Teams of two to five people will compete in challenges and decode clues for a chance to win a $1,000 Grand Prize. You need to register and buy tickets for the scavenger hunt. There are also volunteer opportunities if you don’t want to take part in the hunt.

Other local businesses helping sponsor the event are The Bike Rack, Cafe Green, Base Camp and Local 16.
