Chattanooga Mayor Ron Littlefield and
then-Hamilton County Mayor Claude Ramsey this afternoon
signed an environmental pledge to cut back on their use of plastic shopping bags,
refrain from running the water when brushing their teeth and take other green-friendly
“These small actions can make a big difference,” Mr. Littlefield said before signing
a pledge placard at the Chattanooga Area Chamber of Commerce’s Spirit of Innovation
awards at the Chattanooga Convention Center.
The environmental pledge is being coordinated by greenspaces, which aims to get
more environmentally sustainable buildings in downtown Chattanooga.
