What is Go Green Tri-Cities?

Go Green Tri-Cities is an organization under the direction of the local non-profit, Sustainable Energy and Environmental Network. It's goal is to educate the public on local environmental issues and highlight green businesses, organizations, resources, and events in the Tri-Cities, WA. It is maintained by a group of like-minded volunteers and is supported by both financial and in-kind contributions made by businesses and organizations in our community. 

Check out the tabs above for Green Businesses and sustainable living tips, links, events and opportunities.

Let's talk about Reduce/Reuse/Recycle!

Reduce the amount of garbage you put out this month. Here are 10 ways to reduce waste!

Reuse: Repair, repurpose, trade, and/or buy with reuse in mind. BYOB (bring your own bag) when you shop, donate used clothing to thrift stores, buy used whenever possible.

Approving Cap and Trade Programs for the Clean Air Rule -Survey

If you would like to provide in-put to help us decide which cap and trade programs to approve as a source of allowances for the Clean Air Rule and you have not already done so, please submit a survey by June 16, 2017.

Businesses covered by the rule are given several ways to comply. One way to comply is to obtain allowances that come from an approved cap and trade program outside of Washington state. The rule requires that we determine which cap and trade programs to approve based on three criteria:

 1.) Allowances are issued by an established multi-sector greenhouse gas emission reduction program.

2.) Covered parties in the Clean Air Rule are able to purchase allowances within the cap and trade program

3.) The allowances are derived from methodologies congruent with those used in Washington’s greenhouse gas reporting program.

 Watch the video and take the survey 

View our short video to learn more about the criteria and selection process. Then take the survey to share which cap and trade programs you think meet the three criteria and that you would like us to consider. The survey is open through June 16, 2017.

 If you have questions please contact Bill Drumheller, Climate & Energy Specialist, at (360) 407-7657 or Bill.Drumheller@ecy.wa.gov.
