June 17 event explores practical steps for enhancing a home's sustainability

Often, homeowners presume that making houses more sustainable will require major lifestyle changes or expensive materials and technologies.

That is not necessarily true. On Monday, June 17, 7–8:30 p.m., Home Repair Resource Center (HRRC), the Cleveland Heights nonprofit, will host an informal conversation on practical ways to reduce energy usage around the home. The event will take place at the BottleHouse, 2050 Lee Road in Cleveland Heights.

The conversation, led by sustainability advocate Fred Cortright, will emphasize changes that are realistic, affordable and meaningful.

All area residents are invited to participate. The conversation is free, and there will be food and drink available for purchase. For more information, contact Allison Urbanek at 216-381-6100, ext. 15 or aurbanek@hrrc-ch.org.
