It’s Coming!

GGG.Vert.ImageWait – what’s coming?

It’s mid-October, and that means that we’re less than a month away from one of Central Kentucky’s best events – the Bluegrass Community Foundation and Smiley Pete Publishing’s GoodGivingGuide Challenge.

If you haven’t experienced it before, the GoodGivingGuide Challenge is an awesome six-week campaign aimed at raising awareness of, engagement with, and funding for the many amazing nonprofits providing critical services in the bluegrass. This year’s Challenge will begin at 9 a.m. on November 13th and run through December 31st at 11:59 p.m.

Once again, Bluegrass Greensource is participating in the Challenge and will be seeking to engage with you – our supporters and community partners. We’ve got an exciting campaign planned, one filled with useful information and tips for greening your home and workplace, in-depth looks at the work Bluegrass Greensource does each day, and some fun filled ways that you can support our work.

This year’s Challenge also features some new and exciting ways for supporters to engage and raise awareness on behalf of their favorite nonprofits, many of which go beyond making a monetary donation. In short, it’s an excellent opportunity to raise awareness of the needs of our shared environment and help get the word out about all the ways that we can actively work to improve our communities and the natural systems on which we all rely.

So stay tuned! If you don’t already, please follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Keep an eye on your inbox. And help us spread the word to your friends and others in your network that share your passion for protecting and improving environmental sustainability in Central Kentucky!


Sustainable Living Needs Sustainable Giving

toddlers with crayfish 3Small changes lead to big impacts.
At Bluegrass Greensource, we see this in action every day.
Providing support for schools to recycle leads to recycling rates more than doubling in one year. Supporting local businesses in implementing sustainability initiatives leads to reductions in energy usage and the amount of waste produced. Partnering with major events to help them achieve a Zero Waste status leads to significant amounts of materials being diverted from landfills and into recycling and compost streams.
These and other outreach activities lead to a healthier, stronger environment in Central Kentucky. But providing this support comes at a cost to Bluegrass Greensource.
One small change you can make that leads to big impacts is becoming a sustainable giver. By donating a little each month, you can turn $5 into $60, $15 into $180, or $25 into $300. You can provide a steady stream of support for Bluegrass Greensource’s outreach efforts and show your strong commitment to a greener, more sustainable Central Kentucky.
