Mission

Our mission is to educate and support people, businesses, and schools in taking action to practice more environmentally sustainable habits. 

We work with individuals, cities, companies, schools, non-profit organizations, religious groups and government agencies to conserve natural resources and support environmentally friendly activities and products. We provide training materials and support for local organizations, government agencies, and small businesses to start their own programs.  It is our strong belief that both individuals and businesses can maintain a high standard of living and profitability while conducting themselves and their businesses in an environmentally responsible manner. The Project is about positive change as it supports behavior and attitude change in a fun, supportive, and non-judgmental manner.
