Sustainable Living

The Missouri Botanical Garden provides resources for advancing sustainability at home, at work and in the community. We provide a wide array of information to support energy efficiency, reducing waste, controlling storm water, improving indoor air quality and saving money. The U.S. Green Building Council – Missouri Gateway Chapter connects businesses, municipalities, educational institutions and homeowners with the resources they need to incorporate green building principles and practices into new construction and building renovation as well as facility operations and maintenance. As a member of the Deer Creek Watershed Alliance, the Garden strives to educate the community on plant-based solutions for improving water quality and managing stormwater.
