More and more community leaders and citizens are re-thinking how local systems operate and realizing the environmental, financial and community health benefits of creating a more sustainable future for their citizens. Considering the ways electricity, water, sewage treatment, trash removal and other basic services are provided in your community is the first step when assessing the impact your community has on the environment. Across the country, cities are going green and sharing their successes. Graduate students from Columbia University designed this handbook, released by the U.S. EPA, to help your city go green.
