Louisville – For two years, many in Metro Louisville may have heard the word sustainability and various programs connected to it in the Ninth District. They may also have heard about the Green Triangle initiative. Now, they will have a chance to see what all the talk is about.

A new District 9 Spotlight on Metro TV focuses on this program.

“The Green Triangle initiative has been very well received inside and outside our district. People often ask me how they can do these kinds of green projects in their area of Metro Louisville,” says Councilwoman Tina Ward-Pugh (D-9). “This video will help.”

The new Metro TV District 9 Spotlight features the principles and the programs of the Green Triangle initiative and its partners. It includes the Expanded Recycling Program for residents and businesses in 9th District, the Billy Goat Hill Community Garden Electric “Goat” Lawnmower, waste cooking oil recycling through the Louisville Biodiesel Cooperative and the bike rack at N. Keats and Frankfort Avenue.

“This is just a sampling of how sustainability has begun and can grow in Metro Louisville,” says Ward-Pugh. “I encourage everyone to watch this program and maybe you will get some ideas on how you can partner with local government to improve our environment.”

The first airing of the District 9 Spotlight will be this Friday, March 23 at 7:30pm. The show will be repeated on Metro TV Schedule for the next several weeks. The Spotlight will also be available online at www.louisvilleky.gov/metrotv, and on the 9th District website at www.louisvilleky.gov/MetroCouncil/Members/09.
