Portland, Oregon ranked US's "Greenest" City!


Recommended Posts

According to an article in the June 2007 issue of VegNews magazine, "Global Green, 10 Urban Hotpots Leading the Way", Portland Oregon is the most ecologically sustainable city in the United States! Yay!


The full VegNews city list:

- Amsterdam, Netherlands

- Chicago, Illinois

- Curitiba, Brasil

- Freiburg, Germany

- Kathmandu, Nepal

- London, England

- Portland, Oregon

- Reykjavik, Iceland

- Signapore

- Toronto, Ontario


Not only is Portland #1 but 4 of the top 5 cities are on the Left Coast, with 2 of these in Cascadia & the other 2 just to the south! Sadly, the highest ranking cities all recieved low scores in terms of affordability...

I've been to Singapore and I have no idea how they made it on there...unless they count a minor part of the capital. Anyway...yeah for Portland

As mentioned in many posts in the Vegan Vacation section (2006 version) Portland is #1 in more 'positive' categories than pretty much any city I know of.


Portland has tons of #1's so it's no surprise that we're the greenest......and also the most sustainable, most bike-friendly, #1 place to have a baby, #1 public transit city, #1 vegan-friendly, etc. etc. etc.


It's nice to be here!


See many of you this summer for Vegan Vacation!
