OUR PROGRAMS SAVE MONEY, ENERGY, RESOURCES
Be The Crowd vs Climate Change!™
Mainstream Green Inc. develops public outreach programs that can save people money or energy, cut waste, avoid pollution, protect resources, eliminate use of fossil fuels, and help save the planet.
We are a 501 C-3 Non Profit environmental charity.
Since our start in Feb. 2015, we’ve been designing and implementing programs we describe as “low hanging fruit:” Actions that have immediate positive impact versus climate change. They are inexpensive & easy for the general public to understand & implement. When adopted by a large volume of people, any single one of these programs can aggregate into meaningful impact.
Like this: Imagine a big boat with a lot of people on board. The boat is tipping to one side and in danger of tipping over. All the people go to the opposite side, at the same time, and the boat rights itself. That’s what we’re doing. Trying to get as many people as possible on one side of the boat, with simple, easy habit changes. Each new habit could be the “gateway” to further engagement in additional new, environmentally beneficial habits.

By the time you get through your supermarket checkout line, you may have your mind on the next item on your to-do list and not on what your checker person is saying when they ask you if you want them to put your gallon of milk in a bag. You may not even hear them ask. Then suddenly you see yourself leaving the store with the greatest ocean pollutant, enemy of fish and wildlife, the sewer-clogging, petroleum wasting, BPA-spreading blight that is the flimsy, yet ultimately indestructible disposable carryout plastic shopping bag. Milk jugs do not need bags.
