Here's what the site had to say about the city:
"Close to the nation’s capital, Alexandria did something no other city could: rank in the top 20 in all four categories. Their conscious effort to be more green extends beyond our criteria, as they are active in implementing climate change initiatives, and 23 percent of their citizens are environmentally conscious commuters, good for a ranking of third in that category."
The site ranked 189 cities using the following criteria:
- Number of Public Parks
- Number of Recycling Centers
- Environmentally Conscious Commuters
- Walk Score
Each city was given a score based on their rankings in each category. Scores from each category were combined and divided to find an average. The lower the average number was, the better the city ranked, according to MyLife.
