America's Greenest Cities
No. 9 San Francisco
The Bay Area’s great restaurants embraced local, organic eating long before it was cool, but the city’s commitment to the environment goes beyond its highly ranked dining or even its mass transit system. The city composts 600 tons of scraps every day and has a goal of 100 percent recycling by 2020. The Silver LEED–certified AT&T Park—the first solar-powered Major League Baseball stadium—even offers eco-friendly concessions at the super-energy-efficient Green Garlic Fries.
