Full Text: Cornell Cooperative Extension-New York City educators have been conducting workshops on energy efficiency and conservation, healthy homes, and sustainable living for the city's residents in affordable housing units. They hope to reach 900 such citizens in 2012. Sustainability educators teach people eco-friendly habits, such as shutting off electronics when not in use and eating more whole grains. "Sustainable living to some people may sound like an ivory tower ideal, but with a little bit of push, people can realize it really applies to their daily lifestyles," said Cornell undergraduate Richard Mai, a project intern.
