OUR PROGRAMS SAVE MONEY, ENERGY, RESOURCES
Be The Crowd vs Climate Change!™
Mainstream Green Inc. popularizes habits that save money or energy, cut waste, fight pollution, protect resources, and shrink use of fossil fuels. We use media and high visibility public events to attract peoples’ interest and participation. We educate, inform, publicize, advocate, persuade.
We are a 501 (C)(3) nonprofit environmental charity., powered by volunteers.
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.
