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.
