The City's Focus is Green

Green Logo

Want to green up your lifestyle? The City of Santa Cruz’s new GreenFocus webpage can link you up with a free shower timer, a green building contractor, rebates for efficient appliances, and other earth-friendly connections.

“There are a lot of great environmental programs that the City supports and sponsors, but they’re managed by different departments with different websites,” said Ross Clark, Climate Action Coordinator for the City. “With GreenFocus, we pull together all of those programs in one location. We want to show the full breadth of the programs that we offer, and help people find the information that they need.”

Learn how to lighten your carbon footprint with free low-flow showerheads and garden hose timers, and find out where to recycle old batteries and leftover paint. Enhance your garden, and the environment, with a low-cost compost bin and rain barrel.
