Top 10 most sustainable cities in the US
In a recent study, WalletHub studied the 100 largest US cities and used a combination of these complex scores to produce sustainability rankings.

Here is a simplified list outlining the top 10 cities (of which California takes up 60%) and explaining what these cities are currently doing to improve their sustainability.
