Trees, lawns and farms are struggling to survive under the Texas draught conditions. Leah Haynie and Zachary Baumer from the City of Austin’s Office of Sustainability were our guests on Shades of Green Energy Radio show.
They introduced us to the programs that have been created to help Austin residents and businesses reduce our carbon impact and keep Austin a green, comfortable and beautiful place to live. There is wide range of great initiatives available to us in Austin through the Office of Sustainability. I’ve listed a few that you can click on to visit … but once you’re there you may just let your fingers do the walking and find out about the wide range of ways you can help Austin be sustainable through some of these programs!
