ClimateStore was founded in 2013 by Dr. Steven Bushnell
A scientist by training, Steve switched careers to start ClimateStore after reading the consensus reports and learning about the urgent need to reduce our collective emissions from fossil fuels.
The son of an artist, husband, father of three and an avid hiker, he was struck by the lack of a 'one-stop-shop' for people interested in taking personal action.
The company was started in his attic, is powered by renewable solar and excited about providing high quality resources, products and science based information. As a trained Climate Reality Project leader (class of '13), and advocate for Citizens Climate Lobby, Steve actively supports COP21 goals, broad fact-based climate education, and carbon fee and dividend programs.
The Boston area start-up is actively adding low carbon products, DIY guides, resources and forming early partnerships.
