Creating an Eco-Friendly Home in LA: Residents of Los Angeles are no strangers to eco-friendly practices. LA has the highest rate of solid waste recycling among all large American cities – 62%. So, what does this all mean? Well, according to the Brookings Institution, a prestigious Washington think tank, LA truly is the “Emerald City,” ranking greener than New York, more virtuous than Portland, Oregon and, yes, even better than socially conscious San Francisco.

Nearly 80% of the city’s trash vehicles and street sweepers are powered by natural gas. Also, almost 14% of all LA’s energy comes from renewable resources, including solar and wind power. The city’s L.A. Solar plan, the largest of its kind in the nation, is slated to provide for 10% of all LA’s energy needs by 2020.

Let’s not forget more influential green organizations have been founded in LA than in many other city, including groups like the American Oceans Campaign and Heal the Bay and Tree People.
