Eco-Village is proof that sustainability can survive even in the concrete jungle. Eco-Village encompasses a two-block radius near Koreatown in Los Angeles, where the nonprofit organization is host to 35 residents and growing.
Efficiency and togetherness are more than just ideals in this community. Eco-village inhabitants work (and play) together to shrink their collective carbon footprint, including growing their own organic food, composting, weekly pot-lucks, soil-building chickens, and using solar power to supplement electricity. Executive Director Lois Arkin says the village’s mission is to achieve a higher quality of life, along with a lower environmental impact.
Our fingers are crossed that this little village’s example goes a long way. Learn more about Eco-Village on their Website.
