Sorry for the lag in posting yesterday. We were all under the weather with a nasty 24 hour stomach bug. Once we were over that, we had to dig ourselves out of the 2 feet of snow that we were hit with. All in all, an exhausting day. Now, back to regularly scheduled programming...
I think our small town is a pretty green place to live. We have great access to public transportation, they offer a points based recycling program through RecycleBank as well as using the money they save on landfill fees towards keeping our property taxes low, they host community clean up day twice a year where they take all the items that cannot be disposed of in regular trash or recycling pickup and dispose of them properly, and they recently built a playground where most of the equipment was made from recycled consumer products.
But I feel like there is so much more our town and county can do to be eco-friendly. I am just at a loss as to where to start and who to turn to for help. I cane across HowGreenIsMyTown.org and I feel like maybe this site may be able to help me to know what questions to ask, but who am I supposed to ask?
Have you ever started something green in your community? How did you go about it? I would love to hear your success stories and ideas on how to help communities big and small become more eco-friendly!
