In Mission: Transition we’ve talked a lot about government policies that will make the transition happen faster. But we all have our part to play.
In this final bonus interview, Susan sits down with Dave Grove, a small business owner who started out with an electric car – and ended up going green from top to bottom at his bakery business near Victoria.
Dave’s clean energy journey shows us we all have an opportunity to start right where we are, in our own communities. Through his story, we see how big changes can be made toward a strong clean energy economy, step by step.
Dave recently retired, and Royal Bay Bakery has been taken on by new owners Brad and Ashley Kiss, who wanted this bakery out of all the bakeries in the world because of Dave’s clean energy work.
Sue speaks with Brad, who leaves us with some final words to remember:
“Do your part. Be clean. Be contentious of what you’re doing. It’s our responsibility to do our share to have the smallest carbon footprint for our future, for the planet’s future, for our kids’ future.”
You can hear more from Dave and others in Episode 6: Community Power: Taking Action where we talk about what happens to jobs as we shift to the next economy.
