San Jose to Lead The County in Sustainability

If you're going to have a cause, you might as well go full-force, that's what I always say. Well, it's what I'll start saying from now on, because San Jose, California is well on their way to redefining the standard for urban sustainable living, and they're not taking their approach lightly.

Last October, Mayor Chuck Reed announced San Jose's Green Vision, which aims to get his city to run on 100% renewable energy and clean living. The 10 Green Vision Goals include some wonderful objectives that Reed hopes to achieve within 15 years, including a way to convert 100% of the city's waste into energy, recycle 100% of its wastewater and plant 100,000 new trees within the city. We can only hope that this plan stays true through the projected time and acts as an example to other cities interested in adopting similar measures.
