Greenest Cities in the US

By Tonka Dobreva 04.22.2015 interact

International Business Times last year ranked the Top 10 Greenest Cities in America based on the size of a city’s carbon footprint, the number of LEED-certified buildings and the amount of green space they have. Based on that list, we put together this interactive map– click on a city below to see some of its local green initiatives that create a healthier environment for the residents.

Is your city on the list? You can brag in the comments section below — or you can tell us what your city or town is doing that makes it worthy to get an honorable mention.
