Many local eco-teams have already successfully participated in the program. Several households participated in the first eco-team in the Eastside Hill neighborhood. The team wrapped up in April and Marcy Smith had this to share about the experience. “It was a great way to connect with your neighbors, while learning more about sustainability. It really made us aware of all of the things we could do to live a more eco-friendly lifestyle. I would recommend it to anyone!”
