The Green Oceanside campaign is dedicated to teaching residents and local businesses how to be better stewards of the Earth and to implement programs that protect and conserve natural resources. Through collaboration and partnerships among city departments, local businesses, community groups, schools and residents, the Green Oceanside campaign offers numerous opportunities for people to participate in events and program that provide a direct benefit to the local environment while reducing the City’s carbon footprint.

“The April MainStreet Mixer will be a great way for residents and businesses to celebrate Earth Day,” said Gumaro Escarcega, MainStreet Oceanside’s program manager. “Not only will they be able to socialize and network while enjoying local food, drinks, music and eco-friendly artwork, but they will be able to learn more about the Green Oceanside campaign and hear firsthand from their business peers how easy it is to get involved and help the city reach its recycling goals.”
