Steps to a Sustainable Life in Midtown Houston


The most walkable district in Houston – Midtown – is the perfect place to jumpstart a green, sustainable lifestyle. Why not try it out now?

It shouldn’t be a headache to have less of an impact on the environment. That’s why we’ve made it is easy to do so in Midtown Houston:


  1. Shop Local

Buying local is a fun and mutually beneficial way of being more eco-friendly while doing the sort of shopping you would have to do. Check out our Farmers Market happening every Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Elizabeth Baldwin Park to get your groceries from Houston farmers and vendors.


  1. Travel Different

How we get from point A to point B has a big impact on the environment. Rather than drive, you can take advantage of three MetroRail stops, eight BCycle stations and three Zipcar locations in Midtown Houston.

BCycle: Download the app to check out and return bikes whenever it’s convenient.

Zipcar: Instead of owning a car or driving one regularly, you can pick up a Zipcar as needed.

MetroRail: Fare for the MetroRail is just $1.25, making it an affordable option that means you can bypass traffic while saving money and avoiding pollution. Your stress levels will decrease too.


  1. Get Involved

Show your pride for the great outdoors by getting out and about in the community. Attend more of our events at parks in Midtown Houston, talk about your passion for green living and lead by example. Not everyone finds going green easy or even understands why it matters. When the opportunity presents itself, consider spreading the word about how others can be more eco-conscious in Midtown Houston
