Sustainability Starts Here

Building Sustainable Communities

Sustainable communities start with the actions of individuals. Together we can minimize waste and environment deterioration. However, living more sustainably goes beyond just natural resource and environmental conservation. Sustainability can also positively impact local economies and offer an opportunity for positive collaboration with your fellow community members. UF/IFAS and its Program for Resource Efficient Communities can help you learn more about the five pillars of sustainability, as well as how you can get more involved in your community's sustainability initiatives.
