The U.S. Postal service is making a huge green leap and showing the nation that they’re serious about going green.
The USPS building in New York City turned a massive 2.5 acre roof into a green mecca. It is the next in many sustainability projects the USPS has taken on.
The seven story building will now have one of the largest green roofs in the country. It will not only serve as a park and open space for employees, but will also save energy and reduce storm water runoff.
Wal-Mart is the biggest retailer on the planet.
This is a scary thought but the nearly 40-year-old company continues to work to become more sustainable.

A consortium of NGOs and businesses, with the help of these universities is collaborating to create the world’s first consumer sustainability index.

The 21st Navajo Nation Council voted "green" and passed the enactment of the Navajo Green Economy Commission this week.

For the first time in history, more people live in urban cities than in small cities.
This has a massive effect on the fight against climate change. In many ways it is up to the efforts of those within these highly populated urban areas to set the example for the sustainability effort globally.
A new report by Living Cities looks into this and works through to answer just how urban sustainability efforts can and must drive America’s climate change policies.
The U.S. is closer than ever to passing bold climate and energy legislation that will create millions of jobs and help solve the climate crisis. But the battle is not over yet. The American Clean Energy and Security Act must first pass through the United States Senate.
