In 2008, Forbes magazine issued a report on the “greenest” states which measured factors like clean water, air quality, carbon footprint and obesity rates. Indiana ranked a dismal 49 out of 50. Sustainable Indiana 2016 is a collaborative project initiated by Earth Charter Indiana to dramatically change this picture through a massive grassroots educational, motivational and green practices campaign. The year 2016, when Indiana celebrates its Bicentennial, has been chosen as a target date to unveil Indiana as a national leader in “green innovation.”
