Earth Day will celebrate its 50th birthday in 2020, and by that time, Green Umbrella wants to make Cincinnati one of the top 10 green cities.

Our region has over 101,000 acres of protected greenspace, and in the past three years, we’ve seen a 55 percent increase in farmers markets. There is now $191 million in slated funding for walkable and bike-friendly communities, and Greater Cincinnati has ranked in the top 10 for our parks, trees, bike commuting, local food and for its commitment to sustainability.

But we still have a long way to go. 
Green Umbrella has 10 actions you can take today to help make Cincinnati more green — see them here.
