WHO ARE WE?
Washington Green Solutions is a consulting organization looking to solve all of your environmental and equity needs. We specialize in making any project, program, or effort to improve Environmental Justice communities a better success with lots of engagement and education
Washington’s Green Solutions’ mission is to improve the environments of Environmental Justice (EJ) communities and front line organizations through assisting them with environmental work and education throughout the county.
With Environmental Justice becoming a more known issues around the nation we want to ensure that all businesses, organization, and community-focused groups are able to create Equitable and Safe environment for their communities. Many groups in this work unfortunately do not have the capacity or expertise to do all the work they need to make a full impact. So this company was made to fill in those gaps for our every-growing environmental work. If this is a need that groups need internally (with operating staff), we are happy to direct those needs to our partnering company Just By Nature (www.justxnature.com)
Lots of work needs to be done in our EJ communities, and we don't want any community to be unaware or unserved in this environmental movement. So if this sound like the right place for you please check out our services and schedule a consultation with us!
