Be Cool with White Roof Project!

Environment Action Association took part in White Roof Project on June 26th 2012.

Under the strong sun, EAA staff members and volunteers rolled up their sleeves to coat and clean up four rooftops on 9th St.Manhattan, NY near theTompkins Square Park.

About 15 people gathered at 9 in the morning, 4 people took charge of each building.
The White Roof Project is a New York City-based non-profit that organizes volunteers to coat roofs white to reduce energy use and combat climate change.

By coating black tar roofs with a white solar-reflective paint, temperatures get lower.
It makes this low cost solution a quick and easy way to cut carbon emissions, reduce risks of ‘brown-outs’, save millions in energy costs, and even save lives.

We are really glad that our participation will speed adoption of cool surfaces by raising public awareness and delivering benefits to buildings!!
