A report compiled by financial site, WalletHub, recently listed the ten most eco-friendly states in the U.S. based on 23 key metrics, and to little surprise, Vermont, “The Green Mountain State” sat on top.

The ranking parameters are classified into three equal categories: Environmental quality, eco-friendly behaviors, and climate-change contributions, notes Tree Hugger.

There’s a clear overlap between our environmental and financial needs, for example, we need sustainable, clean drinking water and food, and living in green sustainable cities could possibly be cheaper, writes WalletHub.
