Local Motion Green @ Ecology Center

LocalMotionGreen at the Ecology Center is a program of the Ecology Center. LocalMotionGreen was first created in 1999 as a grass-roots non-profit organization. For almost 15 years, LocalMotionGreen served local communities with the mission of raising public awareness about the links between environmental toxics and cancer in an effort to influence personal behavior to promote improved health and quality of life. 

On May 1, 2013 LocalMotionGreen merged with the Ecology Center, a membership-based nonprofit environmental organization with a strong regional and national reach. The two organizations share the common goal of improving health and quality of life. 

LocalMotionGreen's Green Living Resources continue to be available through the Ecology Center.

LocalMotionGreen @ Ecology Center uses multiple modes of delivering information to consumers:

  • Shoppers’ Guides: downloadable, handy, color-coded guides for consumers to quickly reference products to look for and ingredients to avoid.
  • Healthy Living Dictionary: collection of words and terms that help you be a better shopper and protect your family from toxic chemicals in everyday products.
  • Healthy Living Videos: short videos providing useful knowledge and helpful tips on ways to reduce exposure to harmful chemicals in daily life.
  • Green Living Workshops: fun and engaging community presentations available to small groups.
  • Mind the Store: easy ways to take action encouraging the nation's top 10 retailers to reduce toxic chemicals in consumer products.
