The Green Volusia program is a long-term initiative designed to provide residents and visitors with information about green, or sustainable, practices.
Being sustainable or being green involves each of us reducing our impact on the environment. From the trash we generate, the purchases we make, the energy and water we use, to the driving we do. All of these things have an impact on our environment. Green Volusia aims to provide information about environmentally responsible practices that benefit the whole community as well as encouraging stewardship and conservation of our natural resources. Green Volusia's actions for sustainability were recognized by the Florida Green Building Coalition who awarded our re-certification as a Green Local Government in 2017.
