Green Zebra Opens Environmental Action Center

Green Zebra recently opened their Environmental Action Center (EAC) in Crocker Galleria (50 Post Street between Montgomery and Kearny) in downtown San Francisco.

What you'll find at the EAC:
  • Determine the solar capacity of your roof and how to have a solar system installed for no money down
  • Discover how much water (and money) you can save by collecting rainwater
  • Learn about less-toxic products and techniques to keep pests under control in your garden
  • Try out a few solar and carbon footprint calculators
  • Take home informational brochures and wallet guides with information you need to make choices that are healthier for you and the planet
  • Demystify what types of waste belong in each of your colored garbage bins
  • Learn how to compost
  • Drop off your old cell phones, used printer cartridges, and household batteries
  • Climb aboard the electricity making machine to pedal off a few calories and get a feel for how much human power it takes to light a bulb, play a radio, or run a fan
You'll also find 2009 Green Zebra guides for San Francisco and the Peninsula/Silicon Valley priced at $15 (40% off retail). Each edition acts as a green business directory that describes and presents thousands of dollars in savings from more than 150 local green companies.

The official launch party is Thursday, August 27, from 5:30 to 8:00 pm. There will be music, eco-friendly cocktails, and local, organic snacks. There is no cost to attend, but an RSVP is requested to events[at]remakelounge[dot]com.
