    Sustainable Politician Project

This position gives volunteers the opportunity to put their research skills to use as we gather information to be written into concise articles about congressional candidates.

    Please read more below . . .

    The Problem this Project Addresses

    Sustainable Politician Project is a tool to help American voters find sustainably-minded politicians that support environmental causes, initiatives, and legislation. We publish reviews of “green” federal congressional and presidential candidates to help inform voters. Each review for each county’ssustainable candidate ranking is based on past experience (if applicable) and commitment to environmentalism. This project is dedicated to addressing the issue of environmental policy and politicians-- and ensuring that we help make the greenest votes matter the most.

    The United States of America is our primary target, but we know that the US has historically led worldwide initiatives when it comes to industry reforms.
