Living in an urban center means that you’re close by to many things and you don’t need to use as many resources as your other modern lifestyle counterparts do. With that being said, there are still countless ways to make your living arrangement that much more environmentally friendlier! And great news for you, many of them are simple and easy to implement. It doesn’t take much to reduce your ecological footprint and have a greater positive impact on the world.
