Vote below (voting ends in 10 days) and/or leave a Comment re your Favorite Green Innovation in Ft. Collins or Boulder at bottom. Bike Parking? Xeriscape on parks? What’s your city doing right?
Let’s share and push each other to green up our respective cities.
For years—forever, really—Boulder has been the environmentally-innovative, science-rich, progressive, hippie, green, outdoorsy, bike-friendly center of the US of A. We’re almost a cliche—just last month Boulder appeared as a dope smoking skiing treehugging trustafarian in a mainstream talk show skit.
And thanks to organization like Naturally Boulder, we’ve asserted ourselves as the Mecca of natural products—the incubator that’s given rise to everyone from Celestial Seasonings and Silk Soy, to Justin’s Nut Butter and Pangea, from Izze and Mix1 to Third St. Chai and Infinitea Kombucha.
But these days, we’ve got competitors on the Green Front. Cities like Portland far exceed Boulder in innovation, these days. And, right next door in the former strip-malled, cowboy-truck filled Ft. Collins, we’re getting bested in a few national “top places to live” and, perhaps thanks to the influence of Ft. Collins’ New Belgium Brewery, Ft. Collins has far more bike-loving hipsters and families, these days, it seems, than Boulder.
In the comments section below, name your favorite innovative + green thing that Ft. Collins or Boulder is doing. Let’s share the wealth, and push each other to new eco-responsible heights!
