100% Solar & Wind Powered!
Soft Star Shoes is now proudly 100% powered by solar and wind! Actually, we have been for a full 5 months now - but it has taken me a while to get around to writing this blog entry. I got a little nudge to write it this week when an EPA report was issued ranking our little town of Corvallis as #1 in the nation in green power use. It is rewarding to see how together little things can add up to a bigger vision. (Must be all the shoes we make that pushed our town over the edge :-)
Corvallis green energy purchases make up 13 percent of the city’s total purchased electricity. According to the EPA, this is equivalent to avoiding the carbon dioxide emissions of more than 13,000 passenger vehicles per year, and enough electricity to power more than 9,000 average American homes annually.
