  • Recycling paper and using recycled paper
  • Food waste composting at many sites

  • Community Supported Agriculture and community gardens in operation at four sites in order to promote locally-grown food
  • Rain gardens and innovative storm water management systems installed at several sites
  • Reducing our own use of bottled water
