The goal of the 2020 Campaign is to raise $40,000 to support our new Sustainable Classrooms program, which will help train 60 teachers in sustainable living education, empowering over 10,000 students and families to improve health, save money, and preserve our Earth for generations to come. 



We teach communities how to live sustainable, healthy lives.

Urban Green Lab – a nonprofit based in Nashville, Tennessee – teaches communities how to live sustainable, healthy lives.  Founded in 2009, we envision a world where all of us understand the basics of sustainable living, with a holistic approach to energy waste, water waste, and food waste in our classrooms, households, and workplaces – places where culture begins.  Our partnerships focus on advancing skills, curricula, a sense of individual responsibility, and life-long behavioral strategies that protect our incredible natural resources for generations to come.

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!
