Many Happy Returns to askHRgreen.org!

What is an appropriate gift for a 10-year old? A lava lamp, a new bike, markers for doodling, a hammock for day dreaming? Our friends at askHRgreen.org would probably go for all of these things, but the best gift we can think of is the gift of gratitude. Thank you for a decade of sharing good green news, tips, advice and wildly creative promotions with your Coastal Virginia neighbors.

When askHRgreen.org first popped onto the scene in 2011, its organizers had a key charge – make it easy for Hampton Roads’ residents to find answers to questions about all things green.

Norfolklafayettbeautification002Administered through the Hampton Roads Planning District Commission, with support from ll 17 of our region’s cities and counties and HRSD, the initiative broke new ground when it launched in July of 2011. For the first time, residents of the 757 had a central resource to learn about recycling, smart water use and how to keep our local landscape and waterways clean.

The askHRgreen.org movement has since attracted thousands of loyal followers; engaged with residents at hundreds of community events; provided over $95,000 in grant money to local educators; and answered just about every question imaginable, all while nurturing a blooming, conscientious green-based culture.

Today, the program is recognized as a unique collaboration and environmental partnership not seen in other parts of the United States. What a remarkable achievement.

We at CoVa are fans. Our staff had the pleasure of collaborating with asHRgreen.org team members from 2015-2018 in publishing Green Living, a special insert filled with facts and interesting features about what we can all do to make our coastal lifestyle a little easier on the environment.

Hey Coastal Virginia!
Just a heads up: we’re giving our servers a little TLC this Thursday, May 2, starting at 4:00 PM. While you’re avoiding the 44% chance of rain out there, our website might take a quick siesta. We’ll make sure it’s awake as soon as possible!
