Have you discovered the benefits of an EV? Bedford has charging stations in locations throughout town like the one I’m using at the Town house. It’s a great way to be greener. Check out the recent article posted on my website (link in profile) about EVs, sustainability in Bedford, and how my family participates. #Candidatesofinstagram #bittker4bedford #bedfordny #bedfordhillsny #katonahny #katonah #katonahlife #sustainablewestchester #westchester #electricvehicles #sustainability #greenliving #zeroemissions #evs #northernwestchester #climateactionnow #climateaction #drivegreen #greenlife

This week, outside the @katonahreadingroom , I attended the press conference announcing the Westchester County ban on polystyrene that will be implemented in six months. Polystyrene (styrofoam) does not breakdown or recycle and it is found contaminating our waterways. County Legislators Kitley Covill and Nancy Barr, County Legislature Majority Leader Catherine Parker, County Executive George Latimer, Bedford Town Supervisor Chris Burdick and local environmental activists were on hand to explain the law and answer questions. #bittker4bedford #candidatesofinstagram #bedfordhillsny #bedfordny #katonah #katonahny #sustainablewestchester #climateaction #climateactionnow #polystyrene #polystyrenefoam #styrofoam #styrofoamban #polystyreneban #environmentallyfriendly #environmentfirst #westchestercounty #westchester #cleanoceans #cleanrivers #cleanwaterways #saveaquaticlife #safealternative #katonahreadingroom #pressconference #bethechange #bethechange 🌎

Pros And Cons Of Air-Source Vs. Ground-Source Heat Pumps Both air-sourced and ground-sourced pumps run purely on electricity. They have different pros and cons, allowing homeowners to find a solution that best fits their needs. Ground-source pumps generally save more energy. This is simply because of their use of consistent temperatures below the surface of the earth as opposed to air-source heat pumps use of variable air temperatures outside the home. Pulling energy from below the earth’s surface also means that the system is not affected by bad weather or storms because everything that is not indoors is buried underground. There is no equipment outside the home that can be damaged or impacted by weather changes. Converting air temperatures can take more energy than converting ground temperatures. This is how ASHPs consume more electricity than GSHPs. On the positive side, ASHP systems may cost less up front and typically give you a better return on your investment in more moderate climates. But they lose their advantage as outdoor temperatures fall.

Geothermal Heating and Cooling - Part 1 Geothermal Heat Pumps are self-contained units that efficiently heat and cool homes and commercial buildings while providing hot water. They use standard electronic thermostats and duct systems, making them appropriate for retrofits of standard heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems. Geothermal Heat Pumps can be sized to heat and cool any building in any climate. Geothermal Heat Pumps quietly and reliably harness the renewable energy generated by the Sun that is stored in the ground near the Earth’s surface. They make significant contributions to a cleaner environment by saving energy, cutting fossil fuel use, and reducing carbon emissions.

@sustainablewestchester has added clean home heating and cooling to its portfolio of energy+dollar saving programs for residents of its member municipalities. What is Clean Heat/Cooling? Ground source heat pumps, also referred to as geothermal heat pumps, extract heat from the ground during cold weather via an underground piping system, which is then distributed throughout your home. During warmer months, the process is reversed to provide cooling.

When Kristen Bailey from the #SustainableWestchester team makes you 🤯 : “if 50% of food waste produced each year in the US were anaerobically digested, enough electricity would be generated to power over 2.5 million homes for a year.”

Glass straws? Why, yes please! We’ve carried them for years and happy to say we are now restocked. Make a choice to say no to the plastic straw whenever you can. That little skinny piece of plastic takes about 200 years to break down. Switching to a reusable one is a small, but significant change we can implement. #sustainablewestchester #sustainableliving #sustainablepicnic #glassstraws

County lawmakers announced last week they would propose legislation to eliminate single-use plastic bags in businesses throughout Westchester and encourage patrons to bring reusable shopping bags. The proposed measure, referred to as the Reusable Bag Initiative, was pitched last week by Legislators Kitley Covill (D-Katonah) and Nancy Barr (D-Rye Brook). It would call for certain stores, such as groceries and food markets, pharmacies and convenience stores, to charge customers at least 10 cents for each recyclable or reusable paper bag to carry out merchandise. “I think the time has come for the county to put in something that is county wide,” Covill said at an Apr. 19 press conference in White Plains. “This is the first step toward a goal we all share to improve the environment by eliminating the plastic bags that pollute our waterways, clog our sewers, back up our storm drains, endanger our marine life and litter our streets.” It would allow plastic bags to be used for meat and produce, by dry cleaners and for garbage liners. Prescription drug bags would still be used as well. The charge for each paper bag, which would be kept by the merchant, would not apply to restaurants or food service establishments that operate outside of retail stores. The legislation also takes aim at polystyrene foam packing materials, banning its use in the county. Items packaged outside the county, including bulk meat trays and computer-shipping packaging, would be exempt from the ban.
