ecoDistrict

Picture this. In the morning, you grab a Capital Bikeshare bike to work, safely cruise down a dedicated bike lane separated from cars and head to your office. At your office, you find recycling bins at every printer and you hear about a new energy-efficient HVAC being installed. For lunch, you stop at a nearby farmers' market and bring your meal to Franklin Park to enjoy, recycling your soda bottle in the blue can on the corner as you finish.
