Sustainable Neighborhood of the Year award

Inspire your neighborhood to compete for a "Sustainable Neighborhood of the Year" award.  It's an award that Sustainable Tallahassee is giving as part of the Tallahassee/Leon County CONA Neighborhood of the Year recognition program.   

Getting your neighbors together to become more sustainable as individuals and as a neighborhood can be both fun and informative - as well as shaping a greener community! 

And because we want every neighborhood to be a winner, we'll provide you with all the resources you need!

You can access the Sustainable Neighborhood of the Year criteria and application HERE.

Resources for Your Neighborhood!

Check out our Resources pages for tips and sustainable practices you and your neighbors can adopt to become a winning team.

Check out our EcoTeams pages which contain suggestions on how to get neighbors together to learn and share about sustainability.  You'll find lots of resources, videos, and links for information and activities.

Ask us to provide a speaker for your neighborhood meeting to provide a formal - or informal - program on a variety of sustainability topics.  Lawn care, reducing plastic bags and bottles, recycling, transportation, energy, community gardens - you name it!  Contact us at

Join our Rags to Bags team during their routinely scheduled meetings for Reusable Shopping Bag Workshops - Rags to Bags! 

We will cut, strip and braid. You'll have to come to find out what that's all about! NO SEWING EXPERIENCE NECESSARY!

This is a program of Sustainable Tallahassee. Peggy Sanford started making bags and giving them away to cut down on the number of plastic bags wasted and discarded from grocery stores.

These bags have always been FREE and anyone can have them. Isn't that wonderful? And look how cute the bags are!

All of the supplies are donated so if you have any fabric laying around or thread - bring it! Fabric can be old sheets even...or shower curtains...or tablecloths.
