We need to be smart about our infrastructure and development plans. Urban sprawl not only increases pollution and reliance on fossil fuel through production and transportation, but it also often infringes on areas of dense wildlife and natural land, often for the purpose of housing only small amounts of people.

Smart solutions include mixed-use developments and transit-oriented developments. These decrease traffic, increase the use of public transportation and even reduce obesity rates. They also use land more efficiently, which helps keep natural lands and wildlife intact.
