Bay Area Green Tours 501 (c) 3 serves as a conduit to solutions for a more sustainable future and a bridge from the past to all new possibilities.The fundamental idea of Bay Area Green Tours arose from a fourth grade field trip to a waste water treatment plant in New York City which our Founding Executive Director, Marissa LaMagna, attended. She couldn’t help but wonder: “Where does all the waste go”?
Ever since Marissa has been an ambitious environmentalist trying to make the proactive changes we need to ensure the health and well being of our shared planet and future generations. In 2008, Marissa began a project of The San Francisco Green Festival, named Bay Area Green Tours which has grown by now into an educational organization showcasing local green models focused on creating a positive and sustainable future.
We provide educational tours and events that demonstrate the sustainable economy in action, inspire support of local green businesses, and empower people to incorporate environmental responsibility and social justice into their personal and professional lives.
