Green Columbus is a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting sustainable living and environmental community building in Central Ohio.
We believe the first step in solving a problem is learning about it. Green Columbus helps advocates and everyday residents communicate information about threats facing our natural resources and share practical, hands-on strategies that can empower Central Ohio residents. Together we can tackle local, national, and global environmental challenges!
It’s not enough for us to get together and learn about environmental problems and solutions—we must also take action! Green Columbus aspires to be a “do tank” (as opposed to a think tank), running programs—such as tree plantings and community outreach events—that have a positive impact on our environment.
