Green City

Just some green friendly facts about Boulder that I picked up along the way. I mentioned bikes being the primary mode of transport in Boulder – well they just passed a law saying that a car must be 3 feet away from any bike on the road while passing.

Boulder offers compost and recycling pick up as well as good old fashioned trash pick up- but they are charging more for trash to get people to produce less of it and recycle and compost more.

Colorado gets 300 days of sunshine a year which makes them one of the top solar potential states in the country. Their goal is 500,000 solar roofs in Colorado which is the equivalent of removing almost 600,000 cars from the state’s roads.
