What is Green Streets?
The Green Streets Initiative is an international grassroots organization based in Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA that celebrates and promotes the use of sustainable, active transportation.
Through our signature monthly "Walk/Ride Days" and other community and educational efforts, we help people personally experience the ways that environmentally friendly and healthier modes of transportation can enhance their lives.
Our aim is to create safer, healthier and quieter streets and more vibrant communities for commuters and citizens of all kinds.
How can I get involved?
Green Streets is best known for our Walk/Ride Days, which occur on the last Friday of every month. On these days, people everywhere are invited to
- first, Go Green (walk, bike, use public transit, skate, canoe, etc.)
- then celebrate and get rewarded!
Our vision is a monthly community-wide party, which celebrates "green" transportation, gives people an opportunity to make community connections, and promotes a festive local atmosphere.
