Green Team Project is all about impact and results.

It's not enough to pledge to change behaviors, Green Team participants assess their current behaviors, track their changes, and measure their results.  Once a Green Team is formed in a community, participants are asked to audit and record their consumption and conservation habits in each of the five categories, both before and after specific action steps are taken.  They are also asked to record what actions they took before joining a green team, during the team, and what they will do after the team.  These records are then entered into our database and results calculated.

At the final celebration meeting, participants receive their results and statistics showing financial and natural resource savings made individually and as a team.  These statistics are derived from our sophisticated database full of formulas about CO2 emissions, kilowatt hours, gallons of water, miles driven and much more.  The report serves as key feedback to show participants that their actions do make a difference on a local and regional level, which encourages further involvement and recruitment of friends, family, neighbors and co-workers who are invited to attend the celebration.  Reports are also provided to the local government and funding entities.

In addition to measuring the quantitative results of our teams, we measure the success of our program using a qualitative method. A written evaluation form passed out at the last meeting solicits feedback on the team process, program materials, and coaching, as well as suggestions for improvements and new resources pertinent to the community.  The team manager, affiliate project director and executive director of the main Green Team Project office, review the evaluations for incorporation into future programs.  It is an effective way to learn what people are thinking about the program on many levels.
