Green Matters

Full 'Green' Ahead

Being "green" can mean a lot of things, from recycling and conservation efforts to buying organic foods and using earth-friendly household chemicals. But at the heart of it all, being a greenie -- or even a green community -- means promoting an

attitude that focuses on correlating development with environmental sustainability, even when it's not the easiest thing to do.

For the 2010 Green Issue, the IN takes a look at what's going on in our backyard. We look at buildings and architecture to see how design can be a benefit to both Mother Nature and economic prosperity. We examine our waterways and problems at hand. We look at where we are headed with our green efforts and what programs and groups are taking a stand to make a difference.

The IN believes in Pensacola. While the city has many areas to improve its environmental standing, efforts in the past year like curbside recycling, LEED certified buildings and a stronger tree ordinance prove we're progressing into a community we can all be proud of.
