Despite the challenges we currently face in shifting our industries away from pollutive, extractive, and destructive practices, living more sustainably is much easier than you think. Be sure to check out the new Green Tips page on our Sustainable Finger Lakes website for tips on how to practice sustainability as an individual, and as a community. Categories include Energy, Waste, Transportation, Food, Household Products, Water Protection, and Yard & Garden.

We all have a role to play in the green movement. Share some of your own Green Tips and ways you practice sustainability on our Facebook and Instagram pages. And if you have some regional connections that will make any of these Green Tips easier to do, please let us know and we’ll help folks connect the dots in our regional movement. We want to build this resource out together! Send your ideas to or find us on social media.
