Meet Our Speakers

Marilyn Price, Green Change / Sustainable Mill Valley

Marilyn told us about her minimalist lifestyle, and how we can take actions in our own lives to fight climate change. As a starting point, she encouraged climate action novices to take a class with groups like Resilient Neighborhoods, and read a guide from the Green Change Action Guides
Watch Marilyn’s video and slides. If you live in South Marin, she invites you to join Sustainable Mill Valley, a local action group she co-chairs with other MV residents. You can also follow them here on Facebook. Email her.

Renee Goddard, Mayor, Town of Fairfax 

Renee spoke about her long track record as a climate activist, inviting people to give up plastics, helping kids walk or bike to school — and riding an electric bike instead of a car. She encouraged us all to go carbon-free as well, slow down and enjoy the ride.

Jinesse Reynolds, Plastic Free Marin 

Jinesse told us how our throw-away culture has led to a proliferation of plastics in our food, air and drinking water. She encouraged us to apply the 5 R’s of conservation to plastics and told us about actions we can take to reduce, refuse, reuse, recycle better, and re-think our use of natural resources.
