Also, please check out one of our recent interactive surveys in which people across the country answered the question of "what is the most sustainable lifestyle"?
The Ithaca Gun factory sits atop Gun Hill, a local residential area in Ithaca, New York.  It was closed years ago but the ruins remain behind.  Back when guns were being produced in large numbers, guns were fired off the cliff to make sure they worked.

The problem is that the factory sat over Ithaca Falls, a large waterfall that contributes to Fall Creek, a long creek that spreads throughout the Ithaca downtown past many residential homes.  The water is toxic in many areas from the gunpowder residue still in the water.


One of the local farmers in my area invested in a wind mill to cut down on the electricity bill.  The farmer said since they installed it in September the windmill has provided about 70-75 percent of the farms electricity.

    Agricultural can cause serious erosion of fields.

Even mid day in the suburbs there is always traffic because people need to drive to get everywhere.
However, the suburbs are not all bad. People in the suburbs do care about the environment and put up solar panels. Businesses, residents, and the town all put up solar panels around the town.
