In partnership with the community, the City of Lansing has launched Live Green Lansing as the next step in greening our city. Building on the foundation laid by the Go Green! Initiative, Live Green Lansing is a one-stop resource for the community to learn, engage and take action in promoting green living in the Lansing area.
The Go Green! Initiative launched in 2006, highlighted the city's growing environmental ethic and helped to raise awareness of environmental issues in the community. Through the efforts of more than 15,000 businesses, schools and residents who took the Go Green! pledge, the city made tremendous progress in protecting water quality, reducing energy consumption and leading the way in recycling efforts. Collectively, these efforts have resulted in saving the Greater Lansing area over 30,000 tons of greenhouse gas emissions per year.
Now is the time to take even greater strides in helping Lansing businesses, residents and schools save money and improve our environment by adopting green practices. Live Green Lansing's efforts are focused on four main areas; energy-saving technologies, transportation, education and waste reduction. Through these focus areas, Live Green Lansing supports and promotes many community programs and events.
Lansing is a wonderful place to work, play and call home. We hope you'll join us in making Lansing the greenest capital city in the nation!
