Green Oceanside Mobile App
April 21, 2014
As part of Earth Month celebrations, the City of Oceanside has launched its new Green Oceanside mobile app. This new tool will help keep people informed of environmental news and events and provide opportunities to learn more about sustainability and conservation. The free app can be downloaded now at the Android Stores by searching “Green Oceanside” and will be available as early as April 22 from the Apple istore. For more information, visit www.greenoceanside.org.
This engaging new, free tool allows anyone in our community to have updated environmental information in the palm of their hand. The app allows the City to receive information and photos, which strengthens the dialogue with residents, schools, businesses and visitors. The new mobile app features sections on various Green Oceanside topics and programs including the Road to Zero Waste, Water Conservation, Stormwater Prevention and Renewable Energy. Also included is a listing of environmental classes offered around the community, an eco-friendly events calendar and other valuable environmental resources and tips. Contact information for each program and maps to events also are included.
Green Oceanside strives to make it easy and convenient for the public to find resourceful information. By bringing program details in a format that is mobile, updated in real time and easily accessible, it’s easy for the community to learn about conservation and implement programs that will benefit their home or business.
Updated news and City social media posts are presented in real-time through RSS feeds from the City’s Twitter and Facebook accounts. Additionally, there is a feature for the community to submit requests for information and services, as well as fun tool for the public to submit photos of their favorite Oceanside environmental and conservation moments.
There is something for everyone on the Green Oceanside app. Whether you are a teacher that wants a quick summary of city conservation programs to share with your class, a business owner that wants to request a waste audit, a homeowner interested in a class on composting or recycling, or any community member wondering where and when the next conservation event is taking place—it’s all here.
