Letter: Beaver Creek man to run "green" campaign

Ali Hasan, Candidate, House District 56
Vail CO, Colorado

As a candidate for political office, I am excited to be celebrating this year’s Earth Day, but I wish our political campaigns took such a celebration more seriously.

As political candidates, we often talk about being “green” and environmentally responsible, yet we submerge entire precincts in campaign literature, ranging from long brochures to wasteful yard signs. Much of these materials are not biodegradable, in addition to being printed and inked with environmentally hazardous materials.

On this Earth Day, I will be setting the goal to make sure that we run as “green” of a campaign as possible. I encourage all other candidates to do the same.

May peace and love be upon you all!
