About OUR Local Community

Due to the heavy urbanization of coastal California, our natural resources of air, water and land (including vegetation and wildlife) are stressed. Many of the point-source pollutants like chemical dumps or smokestacks have now been identified and have been, or are being improved.

The next challenge is the "non-point source" pollutants created by the 20+ million people living and working in our communities. These pollutants are hard to identify or control -- they include urban runoff that kill our streams and the ocean; air pollutants from automobile traffic that creates respiratory problems for our vulnerable neighbors; the heavy (and expensive) use of energy, and the web of inefficient or polluting products that are taken for granted in our daily lives.

When leaders can find effective, efficient solutions to their challenges, they have both the desire and ability to make significant improvements in both their own, and their community's quality of life.

Remember how we rallied to recycle paper and bottles? And how we rally every time there is a community disaster such as a flood? America does it and we do it well -- when there is a practical way to achieve results.

Solutions For Green provides connections to green business processes and products through our programs and publications.

  • We provide articles about potential options and solutions.
  • We maintain a directory of providers of sustainable goods and services.
  • We support business teams -- entrepreneurs, managers and board members -- who need a vision and a pathway to research the new world of sustainability and green compliance challenges.

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has. Margaret Mead

We provide cutting-edge information and strategies for our clients and on-going, extensive research into the latest green business trends, information, and case studies that help businesses, nonprofits and public organizations find practical green solutions.

Part of sustainability is learning -- and part of learning is separating out what you can do for yourself, and what you need professional help to accomplish. We encourage you to balance both resources for your health and well being.

It is recommended that before you begin to use any product or formula, you research what is best for your life, read directions carefully and test all applications in a safe way. Should you have any legal, compliance, or health care-related questions or concerns, please call or see your personal service providers.
