Portland Green Streets Incentives Program
Membership cards, incentives, raffle….OH MY!
What is it?
The PGS Business Incentives Program brings discounts and deals to our members for “going green”! A variety of local businesses in the greater Portland area have teamed-up with PGS and have agreed to offer specific discounts to Green Streeters when you present your very own PGS membership card.
How do I join?
- Fill out the form here to have your PGS membership card mailed to you.
- Check out the businesses that will be offering incentives below.
- Travel “green” to participating businesses and get your discounts!
How does it work?
On the back of your membership card, you will see a table with numbers 1-24. Each participating business has been assigned its own number for identification. How do you know which business goes with which number? Two ways – you can refer to the list below, or you can look at the numbered decal sticker that will be in the window of each business. Just hand your membership card over the counter, and the business will mark a box next to its number identifying that you got an incentive. Depending on the business, you can get 1 to 3 discounts a year. Just look at your card to see how many open boxes there are for that number. You can use the card on any day – not just Green Streets Day!
What’s this about a raffle?
We want to add to the excitement by automatically entering you into a raffle when you sign up for a membership card! The drawing will held on September 1st. Prizes include PGS t-shirts and other awesome items donated by our local business sponsors!
