Sustainable Consumption Toolkit
This toolkit was developed as part of the Urban Sustainability Directors Network’s suite of Innovation Products. The Urban Sustainability Directors Network (USDN) is a peer-to-peer network of local government professionals from cities across the United States and Canada dedicated to creating a healthier environment, economic prosperity, and increased social equity. The USDN Innovation Fund supports collaborations of four or more member communities to develop innovations that address city-identified problems or opportunities in sustainability, or scale up proven innovations.
