Along with other global initiatives, parts of Israel are working to obtain “greener” policies and live “greener” lifestyles. Kfar Saba (a city on the border of the West Bank near Ranana) was the first Israeli city to go green. The city adopted a plan that will increase recycling, the use of renewable energy, and decrease waste production. This includes the implementing of energy-reducing traffic light bulbs on the streets, and even creating more bike pathes and bike-rental stations for effective travel. The city hopes to increase environmental awareness in schools by creating projects that students can participate in relating to the environment, as well as reduce the amount of paper used in schools. The mayor of the Kfar Saba, Yehuda Ben Hemo, is thrilled with the plan, and hopes to see many elements of it come to life in 2009.
