Honolulu again ranked among greenest U.S. cities

HONOLULU (KHNL) - Aside from its surf, great weather and gorgeous views, there's one more reason why Honolulu is a great place to live.

The city has once again been named one of the greenest U.S. cities by the Web's largest people-powered guide to sustainable living.

SustainLane.com ranked Honolulu 17th overall out of 50 U.S. cities for best air quality.  The city was ranked among the top 20 cities overall last year.

The group ranked Honolulu's water supply the 10th in the nation, noting that Honolulu adopted its first sustainability plan in 2007, diverts more than half of its solid waste from landfills and is planning a major mass transit project.
