Taking Green Living Even Further

As you go about your daily life, the smallest actions can make a difference: walking instead of driving, planting a native tree, separating recyclables from trash, buying local produce and turning off unused lights, for example. Bigger actions might include: choosing an electric car, installing more efficient home insulation, purchasing energy-efficient appliances, replacing your lawn with drought-tolerant landscaping or installing a gray-water landscape irrigation system.

Actions such as these add up to a healthier and more sustainable natural environment, enhancing our quality of life. Cupertino residents, along with businesses and the City government, are making important strides in protecting our climate and our air, water and land. We are building on our accomplishments as a community to go further and further in reducing our impact on the environment and climate. The City and other organizations offer programs and information to help you take your personal green living plan to the next level.
