Tucson, Arizona The Greenest of Deserts

October 21, 2009 | 0 Comments

Do you know why Tucson is dubbed “The Greenest of Deserts?” Well, that would be because of its eco-friendly stage. There are a variety of farmer’s markets, hundreds of miles of bike paths and smart water usage like xeriscaping. Did you know that in 2007, Tucson was named one of 13 “Solar Cities” in the United States, and awarded a half-million-dollar grant to better implement solar energy? Yup! It was also ranked the 17th lowest carbon emitter in a list of 100 largest metro cities in the country, according to the Washington DC thinktank The Brookings Institution!

And that’s not all! They also host many ‘green’ events throughout the year to help reinforce the green living lifestyle.  And how could we forget the numerous ‘green’ parks that fight to conserve and protect Southern Arizona’s resources.  They really are a community taking it to next level in protecting our environment.

If this “green” place seems like the location for you, we’d recommend you taking a look at these apartment communities on ForRent.com:
