Whether it's solar panels, urban gardens or bike lanes, Memphis is embracing the green movement. With an understanding that sustainability not only preserves resources (and money) but attracts talent and industry, numerous local philanthropic and commercial enterprises are hard at work developing green-minded ideas. Conservation efforts at Wold River, convenient recycling, and the expansion of park services are most certainly just the first wave.
