Thank you to everybody who attended the Artists Convening hosted by JACCC this weekend. The discussion included finding places to display art throughout Little Tokyo, and the discussion will continue at the upcoming Community Forum.
Higashi Obon is coming up on July 25th & 26th. Once again, Sustainable Little Tokyo will have a booth at the festival. Please stop by and learn about ways that you can get involved with the project, buy a mottainai bag, and find out information regarding the upcoming Community Forum! The temple urges you to bring your reusable water bottles with you, and feel free to bring your reusable bags as well for shopping (or buy one from us)!
Even though it's summer and it's hot outside, now is the time when energy needs to be conserved the most! Turn off lights when you're not using them, and use your air conditioning modestly, especially during Flex Alerts. Instead, try opening a window that doesn't face the sun and utilize fans to circulate air throughout your home.
