Evergreen State so Aptly Named

Here's my shout out to Washington, the Evergreen state, and my home for 20 years. Today, Washington was named the #1 Green State in the nation by Greenopia.

Each state was graded upon 10 criteria, with Washington take first place in all of the categories: Air Quality, Water Quality, Recycling Rate, Green Businesses, State Legislature, LEED Buildings, Per Capita Emissions, Per Capita Energy Consumption, Per Capita Water Consumption, and Renewable Energy Usage.

Oregon and California, two states that build their reputations on being green, come in at fourth and fifth on the list, respectively.

Read the entire list here.
