Initiative Objective

Many towns and cities have a task force focussed on environmental sustainability and create partnerships where volunteers work along side each other to achieve common goals. Most of these groups focus on energy efficiency, renewable energy, water conservation, zero waste goals, sustainable landscaping and eco-friendly  building practices.

Most groups meet regularly. And many towns have annual community events to share and celebrate sustainability efforts.
