Protecting and sustaining the natural environment in and around the place where you live is not merely the right thing to do. Members of the Green Neighborhoods™ program also see value in their participation in the program in the following ways:
- Building a “sense of community” among residents.
- Assisting in improving the aesthetic quality of the community or neighborhood in a way that is also positive for the environment.
- Saving money and learning to reduce excess waste, energy, and reduce resource-use costs.
- Improving image and reputation from people adjacent to your community.
- Gaining a marketing advantage and attracting new homeowners to your community.
