The Grass is Always Greener…

…in cities where they have grass. That said it appears that many cities are considered “greener” than Phoenix, 31 cities to be exact. Sustainlane.com has issued their 2008 rankings for sustainable cities and Phoenix did not score well. Out of the 50 most populous cities Phoenix was ranked 32nd.

There were 3 major categories: front-runners, hitting their stride, and trailing. In the first category, claiming the number 1 spot was Portland followed closely by San Francisco. Phoenix fell in the middle category due to the light rail project and water re-use. And the worst city on the list? Mesa, Az was ranked 50 out of 50. Pretty embarrassing.
