Main Street Green

Main Street Green is a program to enable local main street businesses and commercial districts to obtain a “Main Street Green” designation by utilizing the stewardship tools and innovative best practices developed by WEI. Main Street Green educates, certifies, supports and markets businesses that commit to implementing more sustainable business and operational practices.

Main Street Green businesses will receive technical support to establish baselines, benchmark their operations and identify best practices that others can learn from. By utilizing the Main Street Green Checklist, a stewardship tool that sets effective, yet achievable goals relating to eight major environmental topic areas, participating businesses will be able to:

  • Establish a baseline of their current energy, solid waste, water consumption and stormwater impacts.
  • Pursue energy efficiency goals.
  • Incorporate water-saving strategies.
  • Implement best practices in landscaping and related efforts to reduce stormwater runoff.
  • Shift their purchasing practices to more local and environmentally responsible choices.
  • Educate their customers, employees and the public about actions they can take to reduce their environmental impact.
