UpGrade Athens is a two-year long project that encourages the residents of Athens County to live more sustainable lives in ways that are both practical and effective. The data compiled in this infographic includes information from the organization’s site, newsletters and blog. Most of the statistics were from January 2016 and have not been updated on UpGrade Athens’ site, so even though there are a little more than eight months left in the Georgetown University Energy Prize competition, the information in the graphic reflects the organization’s goals when there were 10 months left.
Have you made any changes to your lifestyle to be more sustainable and energy efficient? Do you have any creative ideas to share with other Athens residents that they could consider implementing in their lives to be more environmentally conscious?
