If you’ve ever thought of starting your own sustainably sourced salad shop or of plucking all the trash from the city streets, check out tomorrow night’s screening of Climate of Change, a film that shows how ordinarily people are making a difference for the planet, around the planet.
It shows how self-described “hillbillies” in Appalachia battle strip mining and mountaintop removal, a London woman starts an environmental communications firm, a 13-year-old in India rallies against plastics, and more.
The screening starts at 6:30 p.m. at Georgetown’s Letelier Theater, and a wine reception catered by Sweetgreen follows. Tickets are $20 and RSVPs are required to this Environmental Film Festival in the Nation’s Capital event.

Tomorrow, right here in DC, you can join people all over the world in an International Day of Climate Action sponsored by 350. (Why does the number 350 matter? Find out in this short video or check out the FAQs.)
So far more than a hundred nations are taking part, and thousands are expected at the biggest rally, starting at noon in Malcolm X/Meridian Hill Park. After speakers, music, cultural performers, exhibits and more, the group will form a “circle of hope” across from the White House.
If a rally’s not your speed, consider the 14 other events in DC (search in your area), including a mass bike ride, a recycling raid, an organic and vegan food prep, and a joycott at Bourbon Coffee, to get you wired about saving the planet.

Tomorrow afternoon, more than 100 bicyclists will be arriving in our fair city, fresh off a 300-mile journey that began on Saturday in New York City. They make up the Brita Climate Ride, which supports climate and bicycling advocacy projects.
Slip out of work early tomorrow (you know, when it will be sunny and 67 degrees), and you can join them for their final three miles and the D.C. Climate Ride Rally on the West Lawn of the Capitol to call for action on climate change and renewable energy.
Show up at Thompson Boat Center parking lot at 3:15 sharp to ride, or greet the riders at the rally itself at 3:45. Tell your boss you’ll be right back at that report, just as soon as you save the planet.
