Ethical-Electric-Signature
We run on 100% wind power provided by Ethical Electric.  What does that really mean?

Switching to clean power…

  • is the equivalent of planting three city blocks of forest
  • is the equivalent of taking an SUV off the road
  • prevents more pollution than all the cherry trees around the tidal basin could soak up
  • prevents two 2 refrigerator-size blocks of coal from being burned every year
  • switch one hundred homes to clean power and we on our way to creating another central park

We keep our studio green and clean, but we also keep our roads clean!  By being a part of the Montgomery County Adopt A Road (AAR) program, we clean our adopted road at least six times a year and help reduce trash and litter along County roads and maintain a clean environment.  The best part? Ultimately, we help protect the Chesapeake Bay!  (Litter that is washed into storm drains, travels to nearby creeks, streams, major rivers, and eventually can reach the Bay).  If you’d like to help/volunteer in our every-other-month road cleaning, email: support@extendyoga.com.
