Frank Sinatra, the epitome of cool, said that if you can make it in New York City, you can make it anywhere. But what if you can’t make it there? Well, then, you’ll probably run away to California, like so many others before you.
With its ample sunshine and eco-friendly reputation, California does provide New York with some stiff competition when it comes to doing what’s right for the environment. But while Cali may have the, like, totally organic-free-range-vegan-gluten-free reputation, New York has done more to lead the way to a cleaner future. With its no-nonsense attitude and nose-to-the-grindstone work ethic, New York has been turning the Golden State green (with envy) by making serious greenbacks and by doing a great job of going green.
