How would your community meet a sustainable ecological footprint?
An ecological footprint reflects the town's use of nonrenewable resources. (Best Foot Forward, 2005) to minimize this impact, the use of recycling, the encouragement of non-fossil fuel burning transportation, and community wide cleanups are all crucial
In addition to encouraging local community gardening, school cafeterias could buy from local merchants, and provide healthy rather than franchised food to students.
Energy needs and resources
When feasible, in addition to encouraging foot traffic and bicycle path usage, areas such as solar, water, and wind power, especially during the summer months could be explored, perhaps with government funding.

") When Johnson defeated Jeffries, however, it unleashed white violence against blacks nationwide. "In Washington, D.C., the Washington Bee reported, 'White ruffians showed their teeth and attacked almost every colored person they saw upon the public streets'."
