Natural Steps Toward Sustainability

Many cities, towns, and villages have decided to live a sustainable lifestyle in their area. They are located all over the state and have passed formal resolutions that declare they are “eco-municipals”. By doing so, they have promised to follow closely to the “Natural Step Guidelines”. This means that they make their residents aware of what is going on, identify the problems in their area, find solutions that work for their area, and create a plan on what steps need to be taken for them to reach their goal. By doing these things in Wisconsin, they are proving that success can be achieved and hopefully more states and counties will learn from what they have started.
