Take 10: Sustainable DC

By Ann Carper


This week the District released its Third Year Progress Report on Sustainability DC, a citywide initiative that aims to make DC the healthiest, greenest, and most livable city in the nation. Of the plan's 143 action items, 80% are underway and another 15% are complete. Sustainable DC is led by the Department of Energy & Environment and the Office of Planning with the input and participation of the District community.

Today—on Earth Day—and throughout the year, you can do your part to create a more sustainable DC by taking the 10 actions below.

And consider taking an 11th step by getting involved in Burleith's own green efforts. Email Francine Steininger, BCA sustainability coordinator, for more information.
