Exactly How ‘Green’ Is the Evergreen State?

Washington state is known as “the evergreen state” for its abundance of coniferous trees. But trees aside, how green is Washington when it comes to reusing, recycling and eco-friendly behaviors? Well, we’re not first place, but we’re not bad.

Washington comes in fourth place among the 50 states.

First place belongs to Vermont, followed by Massachusetts and then Oregon in third. I thought we could do better than Oregon, but it’s all good. Oregon, in fact, came in first place for eco-friendly behaviors. This list was ranked by that along with environmental quality and climate-change contributions.

Washington did place second for highest water quality and tied for first place in highest soil quality.

Last place goes to Wyoming, where seldom is heard a discouraging word. Well, I’ll say it. Wyoming, step up your game!
