Everything we as humans do on the planet has an impact, including what we eat, how we travel and transport, how we heat and cool our homes, and even the clothing we wear. I do my very best to leave the smallest footprint I can, and I want to see state-wide changes to reduce waste and prevent pollution and waste.

I would support tax breaks and/or incentives to encourage Missouri industries and businesses to go green and adopt the use of solar, wind, water and magnetic energy. We are no longer reliant on dirty oil, natural gas or coal and we need to use the clean energy resources that our planet provides us. It’s time we use technology to benefit the environment we live in. We also need to reduce plastic waste and expand easily accessible recycling in Springfield, surrounding areas, and throughout the state.
