Did You Know?

Boston is one of the greener cities in the U.S. It was named the 7th greenest city by SustainLane for its 12% reduction of carbon dioxide emissions, a 25-33% reduction of noise in surrounding neighborhoods and the addition of 320 acres of new parkland. This new energy initiative could really put Boston at the top of the nation’s greenest cities.


And that:

Boston is planning a unique composting center that would help with some of the city’s energy needs.

A proposed multimillion-dollar indoor urban composting facility would capture methane gas that rotting leaves give off and burn it to generate electricity for 1,500 homes, as well as to run on-site, year-round greenhouses. The city has not pinpointed a location for the indoor center, but it would be within city limits.
