About Conservation Value:
Conservation Value was founded in 2004 by a conservation biologist and peers in the business, media, medical and conservation communities to increase public awareness of and access to win-win environmental solutions. Our mission is to provide practical information about steps that people, companies and government officials can take that will improve their finances, health, and quality of life while also benefiting the environment.
"There's a lot of negativity weighing down the public psyche right now—things like high gas prices, rising health care costs. What we are trying to do is shed light on the many win-win solutions that are out there that can help people and businesses save money and boost profits, while at the same time creating a cleaner, healthier environment," says Executive Director, Jon Gelbard. "Just think—you can save over $1,300 dollars a year on gas by replacing your SUV with a hybrid that gets 50 mpg. That's money saved that instead of just going to oil companies, can now be spent on computers, clothing, travel, concerts, CDs, home improvements, education, outdoor recreation, you name it. It's a patriotic way to rejuvenate America, do your part to help free us from foreign oil."
How We Do It:
1. Conservation Value has created and maintains a web site full of resources for people, families, businesses, tribes, and government officials to save money, boost profits and productivity, and improve their health and quality of life through conservation.
2. Conservation Value distributes positive-visioned publicity to inform the public about how our web site can benefit people, families, businesses, tribes, and government officials.
3. Conservation Value conducts education and outreach activities to increase public awareness of the benefits to our economy, health, and quality of life of maintaining a healthy environment. These include benefit concerts, holding information tables at concerts, conferences, festivals, and farmers markets, school and university lectures, and more.
