You don't have to be named the greenest in the world like Freiburg, Germany or smashed by a tornado in order to earn a green renovation like Greensburg, Kansas to be a community fighting climate change. Globally, town and city residents alike are chipping in large and small in this battle.

Maybe your local bakery (like new York's Birdbath Bakery above) is doing everything it can to be the greenest around, your neighborhood store has banned plastic bags, or residents have fought hard and dirty for bike lanes. Now's the time to recognize your local high school's hip, green-themed t-shirts or edible garden in the desert. Communities are stepping up. Show us how with your photos.

And if you're following us on Twitter simply mention us @TreeHugger and we'll include a screen shot of your tweet.
