While you were chillin’, Aspen/Snowmass went to D.C. to lobby on climate change

Comments by Henrik Lampert/

Director of Sustainability for Aspen Skiing Company, Matt Hamilton, recently traveled to Washington D.C. to lobby on Capitol Hill. His mission: ask senators to address the damaging and accelerating impacts of climate change. Hamilton traveled with BICEP (Business for Innovative Climate & Energy Policy) an advocacy coalition of businesses including the likes of Ben & Jerry’s, Burton, Nike and Starbucks. Just a nice little reminder that while you’re probably straight gillin’ on the couch right now, web surfing up a storm, some others are out there busting their butts. Good work, team.

To take action like BICEP, you can sign the Climate Declaration (as an individual or a business) via climatedeclaration.us.
