Forget those “greenest cities” lists: green efforts are sprouting up everywhere. On greentowns.com, 15,000 communities of all sizes log their environmental initiatives in nine categories: building, energy, lifestyle, connections, water, land and conservation, food, transportation and recycling. By clicking on the “How Green is your Town?” icon and typing in a zip code, visitors can discover the environmental improvements happening in their corner of the US.
