GreenSpot was inspired by people like you. People who looked to the City of Columbus for answers to some important questions. Like, what exactly does green mean? How can I get green? How does being green impact our city? That's the genesis of GreenSpot. 

Founded in 2008 by former Columbus Mayor Michael B. Coleman, it's a place where people in our city go to learn about living and working greener, and commit to doing it—in their homes, businesses, and communities.
