In a Nutshell

Donations support community forums about cleaner energy alternatives with tips to help residents improve environmental impact

The Fine Print

100% of donations go directly to Clean Air Council. $1,000 grant provided by Groupon. Donations are automatically applied. Must provide donor's full name at checkout. See GrassrootsFAQs that apply to this campaign. Merchant is solely responsible to purchasers for the care and quality of the advertised goods and services.

The Issue: Overuse of Electricity Contributes to Air Pollution

The typical Philadelphia-area household uses 500-kilowatt-hours each month, which contributes to air pollution. In addition to contributing to global warming, this air pollution can exacerbate respiratory problems and increase the risk of incurring other health problems. The Greater Philadelphia region is currently not meeting the federal health standards for smog and pollution.

The Campaign: Green Energy Community Forum

If this Grassroots campaign raises $500, then Clean Air Council can host a Green Energy Community Forum, which aims to reach 75-100 community members. At the forum, Clean Air Council staff members will discuss alternative energy sources such as wind and solar power, explain how to switch to a cleaner energy source, and educate audience members on other lifestyle changes that can reduce their impact on the environment. Donations will cover the costs of staff time (a $370 value), food (a $100 value), and materials (a $30 value). Each additional $500 raised will be used to hold another community forum. Groupon customers who register their vouchers for this campaign will have the option to receive $10 off entry in the organization’s 5k run or 3k Walk for Clean Air, held on April 21 and starting near the Philadelphia Art Museum.

To celebrate the launch of Groupon Grassroots, Groupon will provide a $1,000 kickoff grant to this campaign.

Clean Air Council

Clean Air Council was founded on the premise that each individual deserves the right to breathe clean air, and the nonpartisan organization aims to protect that right through public education, government oversight, and community advocacy. Now with 8,000 members, the Council educates the public at its indoor air-quality resource center and has expanded its focus to include environmental impacts on children’s health, recycling, climate change, and other energy issues. The Council also hosts the annual 5K Run for Clean Air—the Philadelphia area’s largest Earth Day event and a certified green run—which serves as a community effort to decrease air pollution and support programs that reduce waste.
