We teach communities how to live sustainable, healthy lives.

Urban Green Lab – a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization based in Nashville, Tennessee – teaches communities how to live sustainable, healthy lives.  Founded in 2009, Urban Green Lab facilitates learning opportunities that promote a culture of sustainable living in classrooms, households, and workplaces, with a focus on individual responsibility for energy waste, water waste, and food waste.  Much of our work takes place in public and private schools, strengthening basic, holistic sustainability literacy for teachers, students, and their families, and strategies for protecting our incredible natural resources.

what's new AT Urban Green Lab

Urban Green Lab has done so much for the Nashville community and I’m so impressed with how the organization has grown. I’m especially excited for the Mobile Lab to make a lasting impact on a younger generation in Nashville.

Students learn what they can do in their homes and communities to save money and be more financially sustainable, live healthier and protect the planet. Just this year, more than 1,000 MNPS middle and high school students have participated with the Mobile Lab!
