Tampa Bay Sierra Club advocates for clean energy with free educational bus tour
TAMPA, Fla. - While energy companies across the Bay Area have largely expressed commitments to going greener, local environmental advocates said in some communities, long-standing utility practices are taking a toll.
That’s the focus of the Tampa Bay Sierra Club’s "Toxic Bus Tour," an educational look into the environmental impacts on local communities, especially communities of color.
The tour makes a case for clean energy alternatives while highlighting the impacts of industrial plants and energy burdens in Hillsborough County.
The next tour will take place on Saturday, August 27 from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. Participants will meet at the Dr. Walter L. Smith Library, 905 N Albany Avenue in Tampa. The event is free, and lunch is provided.
