SUSTAINABLE HOUSEHOLDS

Urban Green Lab’s Households Division works closely with community members, nonprofit organizations, neighborhood associations, faith groups, and more to develop systems of sustainable living education to make sustainability a part of everything we do.

This is accomplished through organizing green teams, conducting personalized trainings, connecting you to resources that help make a difference, and more. Together, we can help make Nashville a more just and sustainable city.

Sustainable in the City

Sustainable in the City is a podcast hosted by Zero Waste Nashville and Urban Green Lab that spotlights Nashville’s sustainability champions and shares personal stories from neighbors, coworkers, and fellow community members about the benefits, barriers, and motivators in their sustainability story. Episodes will be released on the third Tuesday of each month on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, or wherever you listen to podcasts.

The UGL Volunteers

The UGL Volunteers are Urban Green Lab’s frontline ambassadors working to make Nashville a more sustainable place. On their own time, volunteers connect their friends, families, and neighbors to key educational resources that inspire sustainable choices at home, like saving energy and reducing wasted food.
