LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, June 25, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — LA City Council Candidate, Molly Basler, is on a green mission and is calling out all LA politicians who have not been environmentally friendly. Basler believes a change is needed in the new age of campaigning, as normal campaigning can lead to harmful waste. Thus, she created the Green Dream Campaign as a way to spread this message and cause true change to LA and the world to be more environmentally friendly.
Basler states, "I am the only candidate that is running a regenerative and restorative campaign. All the candidates talk about the climate emergency but what are they doing about it? Campaigning is so wasteful with too much paper and plastic and over the top in wasteful practices rather than adhering to regenerative/restorative practices. Let’s create a new way of campaigning."
The Green Dream campaign mission is a call to action for all Democratic clubs in Los Angeles. All Democratic institutions in Los Angeles and surrounding areas in all of California should go green and sustainable by 2022. The Green Dream Campaign took a green pledge to follow 9 green Code of Ethics that will ensure that their actions are green and sustainable.
"We as a party, and as a community that supports helping the climate emergency, need to be leaders and lead by example, states Basler. "It's not the speeches we make, it’s the actions we take. We know better, let’s do better."
