The survey asks people about their views on energy and water savings to help assess awareness and bring about positive behavior change.

The PSAs are expected to be screened through a diverse set of media outlets including online, TV, at film festivals, and in theaters.

Topanga's Headquarters for Animal Supplies and Special Gifts
by Lindsay Zook, owner of Topanga Seed & Feed
I have lived in Topanga for 20 years and have been in business for 10 years. My original goal in life was to become an FBI agent and 17 years ago I was on that path, I was accepted into L.A.P.D. academy and was on my way. When my uncle (a long time Topanga resident) passed away I decided I need to live life to the fullest and enjoy every day, I decided to work in a pet store. Ten years ago the opportunity came up for me to open my own shop in the canyon, and after much debate I decided I would give it a try.
