All Ideas Welcome

All ideas large and small are welcome! The goal of the community GREEN IDEA contest is to increase overall awareness of sustainable living and DRG Action teams while creating a buzz in the community. DRG Action Teams are a great way to get involved and collaborate with other individuals who care about the environment and sustainability.
