Eco-Conscious US Regions

Goals

To gather a list of eco-conscious US regions (areas,states, or towns) in order to market an organic product for grass in these areas.

Early Findings

  • According to MSN, 24/7 Wall St., and Mental Floss, the more eco-conscious state, based on its environmental quality, eco-friendly behaviors, and climate change contributions, is Vermont.
  • In the state of Vermont, approximately 82.7% of energy is generated from renewable sources, while 0.1% is generated from fossil fuels. The state has generated 42,941 green jobs and 23.9% of its population carpools or uses public transportation.
  • Other states that are eco-conscious include Oregon, Massachusetts, New York, South Dakota, Minnesota, Connecticut, New Hampshire, California, Rhode Island, Washington, Idaho, Maine, and Montana.
  • According to the Policygenius green homes index, the five best states to build green homes are California, Texas, Colorado, New York, and Oregon. These states were ranked considering their green home initiatives or policies, their solar energy industry ranking, their wind power industry ranking, and their number of homes with Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED).
  • Based on the number of eco-friendly financial incentives, the 10 "greener states" in the US are Washington, Minnesota, Oregon, Texas, Massachusetts, North Carolina, Florida, Colorado, and New York.
