With intelligent choices, you can be a truly sustainable city dweller.

Sustainable city living is about personal as well as societal choices, in the shape of our built environment as well as our habits. It includes transport, water use, and building design, as well as our food choices.

You can be significantly greener in the city than living in the suburbs or outside town. than if you lived in the leafy suburbs or on a hobby farm.

Many of the biggest factors are the choices we make as communities, especially through our governments - as discussed at Sustainable cities. Being active in our communities, and advocating intelligent green choices in strategic decisions is one of the best things we can do.
