CreativeCitizen.com is a collaborative website that enables users to create, share and adopt Creative Solutions for eco-friendly living.
Creative Solutions are tips, green products, habits, and services that reduce environmental waste. Viewers can find solutions on a wide variety of topics that experts or the general community have posted.
Anyone can use the site to facilitate the growth of knowledge for sustainable living, through its wiki-model platform and track the positive environmental effects of the solutions they pledge to adopt, also called their Personal CC Effect. Positive impact is tracked through savings of water, energy, emissions, waste, and money. The savings of the entire Creative Citizen community are tracked through a numerical indicator called the Global CC Effect.
Creative Citizen also encourages companies and organizations to post solutions featuring their green products or services in order to reach a fast-growing audience. A company’s solutions can be validated and reviewed by the community lending credibility to an audience frequently concerned with “Green Washing.” Creative Citizen is free to use and has plans to donate portions of its revenue to environmental philanthropies.
