Review for Acterra: Action For A Healthy Planet, Palo Alto, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I recently became aware of a new program of Acterra's named ACTerra Green. As part of the effort to reduce our carbon footprint, Acterra is applying the latest learning in social marketing to motivate changes in behavior. ACTerra Green works at the community level, a school, church or workplace, and gives the entire community a challenge to reduce their energy usage. The individual effort is magnified by the power of the group, so each individual begins to believe they are really making a difference. Bravo Acterra!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

knowing I'm helping make a difference for something I really care about.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Really smart, imaginative thinkers.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Bring ACTerra Green to every community in the country.

Ways to make it better...

Acterra had more money to do more.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

money, money and money.

One thing I'd also say is that...

ACTerra should continue to invest in marketing its great track record and reputation.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2009

Role:  Volunteer & I am helping to find funding so this program can grow and benefit more and more communities.
