One California city has been named the “greenest” of them all and no, we aren’t talking about jealousy.
Wallethub conducted a study analyzing which cities across the nation were the most environmentally friendly.
San Diego was ranked number 1.
The website stated that the study surveyed 100 of America’s largest cities and ranked them based on 28 “green” factors, including air quality index and greenhouse gas emissions.
The variables were graded on a 100-point scale.
San Diego wasn’t the only “green” California city on the list.
Fremont, located in Alameda County in Northern California, ranked fourth, earning 68.52.
