The Green Oceanside campaign was established to educate residents, businesses and visitors about how to be better stewards of the earth and to implement programs that protect and conserve natural resources. Through collaboration and partnership between City departments, local businesses, community groups, schools and residents, the Green Oceanside campaign provides an avenue for the public to learn how to actively protect the environment through community involvement and engagement. The Green Oceanside campaign offers numerous opportunities for people to participate in events and programs that provide a direct benefit to the local environment while reducing the City's carbon footprint beyond its jurisdictional boundaries. MainStreet Oceanside is proud to be a partner in this Campaign. For additional information and Resources, please visit the following links...

On August 23, 2023, Oceanside City Council approved and adopted the Marine Debris Reduction Ordinance. The new Ordinance specifically addresses polystyrene foam and single-use plastic bags.  All retail establishments and food service providers in Oceanside will be required to find sustainable alternatives to these products. Additionally, all businesses will be required to post educational materials about the Marine Debris Reduction Ordinance requirements for at least one year after each of the prohibitions take effect. The City is currently in the process of developing educational materials, which businesses will be able to download from this website


The City has partnered with MainStreet Oceanside and the Oceanside Chamber of Commerce to provide in-person and virtual educational workshops focused on educating businesses on the new marine debris restrictions.
