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.
