Over the past few years the DC green scene has blossomed. We launched in January 2008 because we felt that there was a void in local, online green information and resources. We’re not die-hard treehuggers–just eco-aware people trying to live a greener life. We write about the things that interest us the most including organic restaurants, the local food movement, urban farming, natural health and beauty, green events, sustainable communities, and local eco-friendly businesses.
GoingGreenDC.net has been featured on Washingtonian.com, NBC4.com, and The EcoLuxeLife. We are also a proud media sponsor of the 18th Annual Environmental Film Festival.
