CLIMATE CHANGE FOR THE BETTER
Membership Campaign, 2013-2014
We are thrilled to collaborate on this year’s membership campaign with Dr. Annie Hauck-Lawson, founder of Brooklyn Mompost; and Mr. Eric Laufer, President and Founder of Laufer Wind Group. Annie is a registered dietitian, whose family practices have been 'green' in Brooklyn for four generations; she is currently the Greening Director at Poly Prep Country Day School. Knowing that garbage going to landfills turns into greenhouse gasses, Annie loves turning that vicious cycle around—and she's not afraid to share the love! Eric holds a degree in Aeronautical and Astronautical Engineering and provides wind energy consultations to ordinary consumers as well as large international energy conglomerates.
