Roanoke Valley Cool Cities Coalition is a partner in the Save a Ton Campaign. Take a look at the website here http://saveaton.org/. Roanoke County, the cities of Roanoke and Salem, and the town of Blacksburg are also involved in this program.
Your challenge: take a look at the calculator and see how to save a ton of money, energy and carbon dioxide emissions all at once.
