LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Awarded for helping keep Louisville a green, clean and healthy place to live.

Mayor Greg Fischer presented Justin Mog with an Environmental Leadership Award Monday. Mog, the assistant to the provost for sustainability initiatives at the University of Louisville, says he's committed to helping find a sustainable future for Louisville.

Mog says he doesn't drive a car, eats a vegetarian diet, gardens, and raises bees. He also lives in a completely solar-powered home.

"We're investing in our historic resources and buildings," Mog said. "We all know the greenest building is the one we don't have to build. Lets not tear it down. Let's preserve  it and invest in it."

JCPS Superintendent Donna Hargens and U of L Interim Provost Dale Billingsley were also there to present the award.
