Top Green Cities

The National Resources Defense Council (NRDC) recently came out with their list of top sustainable cities.

This list is based on scoring criteria that were used to evaluate a number of categories ranging from green buildings to transportation options, and the final list is sorted by small, medium, and large cities.

The top three large cities (Seattle, San Francisco, and Portland) came as no shock to me, but I was surprised to see that Dallas cracked the top 15, while my hometown of Washington, DC did not. The good news for DC is that we hit #4 for top transportation (thank you Metro, sidewalks, + awesome bike routes).

Check it out and see where your city ranks.
