From green energy to Capital Bikeshare, D.C. officials say the District is one of the greenest cities in the country.
D.C. leaders say they want the city to be the most sustainable in the nation, and they're asking the public to help it get there.
Want to make the District a greener place? City leaders say, 'Why not start in September?'"
Start in September is the kickoff of a new sustainability planning effort for Washington, D.C. Harriet Tregoning is the District's director of planning. She says she's already heard plenty of good ideas, from planting more fruit trees to protecting city parks. And she hopes to hear more.
We think we've got a lot smart people and businesses in the District, and the beginning of this planning process is to ask people, what are your ideas, what are your aspirations in making this a more sustainable city.
Residents can submit their suggestions through the city's new sustainability website.
