- Green Our Planet is a funding platform focused on a broad spectrum of
"green" projects. The guidelines below articulate our mission and
focus. Please note that any project that violates these guidelines will
be declined or removed. Please contact us if you have any
- Projects. Green Our Planet is for the funding of green projects –
conservation, education, technological invention, and others — that
have clearly defined goals and offer solutions to our most pressing
- Projects must be part of "green" solutions. Green Our Planet can be
used to fund green projects from the fields of Conservation, Green
Energy, Film & Video, Food, Games, Publishing, and Technology,
School & Community Gardens, etc.
- Individuals & Charities. We fund for a cause: to help green the
planet and make it a more habitable environment for all of the species
on it including humans. We realize that this can be accomplished via
myriad, creative ways in a variety of fields. We thus fund both
individuals and charities around the world.
- No "fund my life" projects. Examples include projects to pay tuition or
bills, go on vacation, or buy a new camera.
- Satisfaction and rewards, not financial incentives. Green Our Planet
offers donors the satisfaction of becoming directly involved in helping
to find and fund new green solutions from around the world, projects
that improve our planet. Project recipients will offer both updates on
their projects and also "rewards" – copies of their work, limited
editions, interesting experiences, photos, etc. Offering financial
incentives, such as ownership, financial returns (for example, a share
of profits), or repayment (loans) is prohibited.
- We rely on respectful interactions to ensure that Green Our Planet is a
friendly place. Please follow the rules below.
- Spread the word but don't spam. Spam includes sending unsolicited @
messages to people on Twitter. This makes everyone on Green Our Planet
look bad. Don't do it.
- Don't promote a project on other projects' pages. Your comments will be
deleted and your account may be suspended.
- Be courteous and respectful. Don't harass or abuse other members.
- Don't post obscene, hateful, or objectionable content. If you do we
will remove it and suspend you.
- Don't post copyrighted content without permission. Only post content
that you have the rights to.
