Business Greening Program : Take Action


Buy Local Santa Monica

Buy Local Santa Monica was created by the Santa Monica business community and the City of Santa Monica to support our local businesses and encourage local buying that strengthens our thriving community by raising awareness about the economic, environmental and community benefits of thinking local first.  


Go To Green LA is where you’ll find all of the green events taking place in and around Los Angeles. For our purposes here, “green” events are anything with a sustainable, eco-friendly, environmentally-conscious motivation. This service is not affiliated with any group or organization, and is brought to you out of the desire to bring the Los Angeles green community together.
