Sustainable Steps

Small steps can have a large impact on the amount we spend on energy, our personal health and comfort, and reducing our environmental footprint.

Sustainable Steps is part of the  Sustainable Columbus initiative and focuses on promoting small steps residents can take to improve their lives, neighborhoods, and live more sustainably.

For residents interested in taking small steps, tracking their impact, and receiving the benefits of being part of a broader membership community, check out Columbus  GreenSpot
