Do cities need a large budget to be green?

    This depends on the definition of ‘green’ in your question.  Every city can be greener by the residents taking simple everyday actions such as using renewable bags, conserving water and electricity, walking or biking, using public transport.

    For a city to implement greener energy and sustainable infrastructure, yes, it is expensive, however the long term benefits of going green will outweigh the initial cost.  By developing new technologies and energies, you create a whole new job market which will employ a ton of people.  You encourage new business to develop, you encourage a whole new mentality of residents to be conscious consumers.  The benefits are not only financial, it is becoming urgently important to start curbing our negative effects on the environment, and we cannot put a dollar sign on the long term health of our planet.
