    Hi, Rotich Kim. Thanks for posting a climate review on our platform. However, this review should not be directed to Chicago Street Decorating Center, but to the Chicago government or city council. The idea behind our climate reviews is to make companies and organizations aware that they could (and should) do better. If enough people agree to your review, we will contact the company and ask them to join the climate dialogue. Read more here:

                  Climate change is not only causing visible damages but also silently affecting the infrastructure of cities like Chicago. It's high time we take necessary actions to mitigate the impact of climate change.
