Green isn't just a concept in Minneapolis; it's a lifestyle. As one of MSN's "World's Cleanest Cities," we strive to make every aspect of our daily lives uphold this belief. We bike instead of drive. Our transit system is eco-friendly. We harness rain through rain gardens and green roofs. Our businesses take part in green practices via green roofs to create healthier and more efficient buildings. Restaurants are sustainable and earth-friendly by using ingredients grown here in Minneapolis. With our "Green Initiatives," we make this city shine, so check out how you can experience the many green aspects of Minneapolis for yourself.
