Seattle is known as the Emerald City, but it is also quite green in the environmental sense, ranking in the top five of U.S. cities for its percentage of “super green” consumers.
Seattle joins fellow West Coast cities San Francisco and Portland – as measured in a recent study by Scarborough Research. Spokane made it into the top 10. The study also showed that “super green” consumers, who engage in the highest amount of environmentally friendly activities, account for 5 percent of all U.S. adults, and tend to have high incomes along with high spending.
