East Bay Green Tours, recently profiled in the Contra Costa Times, is an innovative non-profit that organizes daylong outings to visit sustainable businesses in Berkeley. They've been doing it for a couple months now and it sounds like they've struck a nice balance between being fun and informative. Amongst the some 100 companies they have on their roster are local green favorites such as Go Green Motors, Grateful Body and the restaurant, Amanda's.
The founder now has expansion on her mind and is eyeing Richmond, Oakland and Emeryville for similar tours. For now, though, the Berkeley tours depart the last Wednesday of the month, with the next on February 25 (call 510-704-0379 for reservations).
