The great thing about my job is that I get the opportunity to meet some really creative people that care about their community and want to make a difference. Greenideaz.org is new nonprofit here in Charleston that is taking an innovative approach to environmental awareness and community involvement. Responding to a need for more organizations to support the community in sustainable and environmentally friendly actions, their mission is " to collect the thoughts, ideaz and concerns from the community on environmental issues, and implement a process to improve them; making it easier to live green and enjoy a more environmentally sound community."
Greenideaz.org encourages the community to post on their blog, http://charlestongreenideaz.blogspot.com/ , specific problems they feel need solving. Greenideaz.org in turn will raise funds to help solve the problem. Rather than focusing on one main issue their approach gives them the opportunity to be flexible in what projects they are involved in and what they can accomplish. In a time where environmental issues are still being defined this is extremely important.
