How can Lakewood, its residents and businesses become more resource efficient, reduce waste and protect our air, water and ecosystems?
Lakewood Sustains was held to identify what sustainability means to residents, and share ways to conserve energy and water and incorporate sustainability into our everyday lives. See below for information on this open house.
