Whitehorse Green Guide
Established: Winter 2010
Project Completed: March 31, 2013
The Whitehorse Green Guide is a web-based search tool which allows for on-line access to information gathered about where to find ‘green’ products and services in Whitehorse. The website includes additional resources and information on green principles and practices and provides links to other supporting information and resources.
The overall goal of the program is to create a comprehensive search tool that supports and promotes green choices in purchasing in Whitehorse. Over 100 businesses are included in the guide, and it continues to grow. Use of social media and accessible tools, including a smartphone app, are designed to help increase public usage of the Guide.
