A Green Dossier

Our use of plastics staggers, and the way we just toss it around. People want to go buy clean water so they go buy all these water bottles and most of those water bottles get tossed out and they donít get recycled. What are we doing here? — Marjorie Griek, Executive Director, Colorado Association for Recycling

Mission

Green Streets is a publisher and a social network that aggregates and distributes information, programs, and products concerning what affects sustainability of life on this planet.

The information we publish is intended to gather people interested in learning about or participating in green topical concerns such as energy use and production, our carbon footprints, recycling and waste management, sustainable agriculture and food production, and building solutions that will better serve the world’s population.

Our mission is to work with businesses worldwide, students and citizens to initiate and share solutions that will benefit all. Through participation and consulting services, businesses will serve as the economic driver of the Green Streets mission. Individuals and students, engaged in science-based learning and practice, represent the social force on which Green Streets is built.


Vision

The pathway for people and businesses to reverse our planet’s decline is unclear.

Green Streets will provide an innovative way of sharing and propelling the delivery of vital information, engaging and involving people and businesses in issues that affect all, providing them with tools like social, or participatory networks, where imagination and the willingness to create solutions is given rein.

 Ranch in Colorado
The basic premise of this building is you have a plastic foundation, just like you would concrete or anything else. You put the bales into the ground, cover them with dirt and youíre good. Plastic as you know has a half life of forever itíll be there forever. — Doug Eichelberger, architect & builder of a trash barn
