Thanks for this blog. It is another reminder how neighbors can get together to make a difference in their areas.
To celebrate Earth Day and Earth Month, we’re asking people to share with their neighbors to help reduce waste and live a more mindful lifestyle, whether it’s through hosting a neighborhood-wide garage sale, coordinating a neighborhood clean-up, or planning a potluck dinner.
Outer Richmond Southeast, a neighborhood in San Francisco, exemplifies this mindful lifestyle. Together, neighbors recently used Nextdoor to arrange a neighborhood-wide clean-up. Thanks to Nextdoor, the event grew from a handful of neighbors to dozens.
“The clean-up was a big success. About 35 people participated, and everyone felt very satisfied when it was over,” says Jean Barish, Lead of Outer Richmond Southeast. “It brought neighbors together to work for a common good to benefit the community. Nextdoor was a great way to reach many neighbors quickly – it also enabled us to chat with each other to share ideas and resources.”
