Goodyear "Goes Green"

Quick Reference Guide to Going Green

Does it seem like everyone everywhere is talking about "going green." Well, the City of Goodyear is solidly behind the idea and recognizes the importance of "Going Green." For that reason, we are trying to "green up" how we do business in any way we can and encourage our citizens to do the same. Goodyear is proud to have been one of the first cities in the country to endorse the U.S. Mayors' Climate Protection Agreement as adopted by the U.S. Conference of Mayors.

This section on "Going Green" will help you find many ways you can "GO GREEN" to help our planet survive.
