The Green Living portion of ONE BRIGHT CITY will educate individuals and households on how to live more sustainably and in addition to recognizing neighborhoods that achieve participation levels in green activities with a Silver, Gold, or Platinum certification.
By participating in a tiered neighborhood certification program, Louisville’s neighborhoods will receive recognition for activities such as reducing the amount of waste sent to the landfill, managing storm water on-site, conserving energy and growing produce.
The education component will help residents achieve the criteria listed in the certification program. Overall, the program seeks to incentivize residents to conserve energy, increase residential recycling, eat healthier, buy local food and decrease the amount of rain water entering the combined sewer system.
More details and the launch of the Green Living initiative will come Fall of 2014.
