Seattle based non-profit wants to make our country Gasoline Free by 2040.
Green is good.
But, to get “green” or to live an eco friendly lifestyle, you have to make changes in your life…and, sometimes we need help with that.
A local non-profit, COLTURA, is stepping up to help you make those changes. Their mission is a Gasoline Free America by 2040 and to achieve that, we’ll have to learn how to use and rely on clean forms of transportation. Obviously, this is not going to be easy…especially since we currently have an illegitimate president in the White House and a corruptly corporate administration who refuse to acknowledge Climate Change is a global threat to all of us. In fact, the Trump Administration and Republicans in Congress are moving to abolish the Environmental Protection Agency, the government agency designed to eliminate corporate policies that harm the environment. Now more than ever, we need to take steps to protect ourselves from the growing threat of carbon based pollution.
To achieve their goal, Coltura is hosting its first Green Neighborhood Revolution at Capitol Hill’s Miller Community Center, 330 19th Avenue East on Saturday, March 25, 2017 from 10 am to 2 pm. This is an all ages, free, family friendly event with activities available for kids and adults and a lot of valuable information on how you can create a shift to cleaner forms of transportation.
Under the shadow of Seattle’s Space Needle, Coltura stages rally for “No Gasoline” by 2040.

March 25 at Miller Community Center on Capitol Hill
Green Neighborhood Revolution
Coltura is a local non-profit whose mission is to create a Gasoline-Free America by 2040. March 25, Coltura will host its first Green Neighborhood Revolution, a community and family-friendly event, which inspires and assists people to live fossil-fuel free through interactive, educational, and inspirational exhibits. Focusing on a more sustainable future that leaves gasoline to the history books, attendees will have the opportunity to learn about and test drive various electric vehicles, see solar panels in action, make a plan to get off gasoline, participate in a discussion forum, enjoy vegan food, and more. Kid-friendly activities include education and artistic stations as well as an opportunity to touch and hold animals that are affected by increased C02 levels, thanks to the University of Washington’s Biology Department. As with all Coltura events, the Green Neighborhood Revolution is all ages and open to all.
Coltura is a Seattle-based nonprofit arts organization established in 2014 to create a consumer shift from gasoline to clean transportation. Coltura’s mission is to create a Gasoline-Free America by 2040. To achieve this mission Coltura unites artists, scientists, businesses, and communities to change our attitudes towards gasoline. The goal for each Coltura event, such as the Green Neighborhood Revolutions, is to educate, entertain, and inspire the public to make a plan to stop buying gasoline, as well as to bring communities together to help end human-caused climate change. From concerts and art shows to science fairs and electric vehicle test drives, these events are always all ages and open to all.
As the Editorial Director, Michael Strangeways writes, edits and does about a million other jobs for Seattle Gay Scene, the Emerald City's most visited LGBTQ website. A semi-proud Midwesterner by birth, he's lived in Seattle since 2000. He's also a film producer who would like you to spend money on viewing the Jinkx Monsoon documentary, "Drag Becomes Him" now making its way around the world via film festivals and illegal downloading. In his spare time, he gets slightly obsessive about his love for old movies, "otters", vodka, chocolate, "I,Claudius", Lizzie Borden, Natural disasters, show tunes, Weimar era Germany, flea markets, pop surrealistic art, the sex lives of Hollywood actors both living and dead, vintage erotica, kitties, chicken fried steak and David Bowie. But, not necessarily in that order.
