Go Green Goleta Campaign Kicks Off Earth Month

Watch Video for Steps YOU can Take to Go Green

Just in time for Earth Month, the City of Goleta is thrilled to unveil its new campaign – Go Green Goleta/Vamos Verde Goleta. It’s not just a slogan, it’s a genuine call to action to encourage all of us to take steps, both big and small, to protect our Goleta now and for the future. The tag line for the campaign says it all, “Our Tomorrow is Today.” The City of Goleta is taking steps to protect our environment including six programs in the Go Green Goleta umbrella.  This campaign aims to not only educate you about these programs but to motivate you to take action in your everyday life to make a difference.

City of Goleta Environmental Specialist Dan Rowell said, “Go Green Goleta emphasizes that little drops of water make the mighty ocean. This is a timeless saying that reminds us that even seemingly small efforts, when multiplied across a community of individuals, can lead to substantial positive impacts. By making conscious choices to reduce waste, conserve energy, adopt sustainable practices, we all contribute to a healthier planet for generations to come. Thank you for joining Go Green Goleta’s collective effort to preserve our beautiful Earth, because Our Tomorrow is Today.”

Here are the six Go Green Goleta programs:

  • Plastic Free
  • Healthy Habitats
  • One Water
  • Waste Free
  • Electrify
  • Clean Green Spaces
