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.
I live in Iowa and it is really green not just corn fields
I live near chicago, but i dont know how it is the greenest, it isn’t polluted, but I wouldnt expect it to be at the top.
I’m so happy that Chicago is one of the greenest cities in the USA.
Well my city is not here but I am close to Chicago so I guess that is pretty good
