The Real Footprint of our Stuff
How resources become products and their upstream impact
We reached out to all candidates running for Mayor and City Council and requested their responses to the exact same three sustainable questions. Here are their responses: Broomfield Candidate Sustainability Responses 2019
Please Note: Sustainable Broomfield is not endorsing any candidate. We simply wanted to provide a forum for candidates to express their views on sustainability.
Also, if a candidate is not included in the document, it is because we did not receive a response to our request.
