Village of Lake in the Hills signed the U.S. Mayors Climate Protection
Agreement on November 8, 2007. As part of this Agreement, the
Village has committed to helping educate the public, schools, other
jurisdictions, professional associations, business and industry about
reducing global warming pollution.
In keeping with this
commitment, the Village has developed this web-based Green Guide to be
used as a resource for those interested in learning more about how they
can make an impact.
What Does "Green"
Going "green" is rapidly becoming a
nationwide movement to conserve energy, water, land and
ultimately reduce global warming pollution. Green programs
range from simple recycling initiatives to LEED certified
construction projects using green or energy conscious solutions.
