In the 70’s the “environment” meant your front porch, your city park, the air you breathed; the core of the environmental movement was connection with people. Today, as we face global concerns over carbon and exploitation, the importance of community is stronger than ever.
Despite the push for “green” products and services (including this business) and their apparent good intentions, the comfort and convenience of buying our way to sustainability belies the fact that there is greater work to do: thoughtfulness and creativity beyond the confines of the driver’s seat, the checkout line, or regular business hours.
With this thinking, LG doubles as an art gallery, a classroom, and a space for greater community action. It is regular host to the Golden Gate Electric Vehicle Association, a high-tech sewing circle of transportation activists. It’s meetings are by far the best way to learn about zero-emission vehicles available right now and those coming in the near future. Join us the first Sunday of every month, 11am-1pm.
