5. San Francisco, United States
San Francisco used to be a capital city of the Hippy movement, but it would be wrong to say that this is the only reason this city is one of the greenest around the globe and the most ecological in North America. This city was the first in the United States to introduce the coloured bins recycling system to homes and workplaces, making recycling easy and accessible, and more importantly — legally obligatory. The fantastic public transport system and government’s encouragement for people to use more electric cars also helped San Francisco to be one of the eco-friendliest cities in the world.
The greenest city in Asia also sets a good example when it comes to dealing with environmental issues. Singapore’s huge, revolutionary public transport system is what gave the city the green title. Moreover, the number of water wastage in Singapore is remarkably smaller when comparing it to Asia’s average number. If the average Asian index of water waste is 380kg per person, then Singapore’s is approximately 300kg. In addition to that, every household in this city can easily recycle due to the widely distributed recycling containers.
3. Curitiba, Brazil
Believe it or not, the Brazilian city of Curitiba is one of the eco-friendliest in the world, and surely the most ecological place in Latin America. The residents of Curitiba boast an amazing 70% recycling rate of the city’s waste. Also, Curitiba achieved the greenest city award by developing one of the biggest bus and public transport systems in the region. Moreover, the city’s government works hard to make the world a greener place by planting more than 1 million trees around the streets and highways.
2. Helsinki, Finland
Helsinki is another city that’s leading the world in beautiful design and eco-friendliness. In 2012, the city was named the World Design Capital due to its sustainable developments, complex and green energy systems, and its efficient public transportation systems. In terms of citywide landscaping, the way the people of Helsinki have maintained their gorgeous city is a testament to their taste and eco-initiative.
1. Copenhagen, Denmark
Due to its eco-innovation and sustainable employment initiatives, Copenhagen is consistently ranked as the number one ecologically advanced city in the world. Considering the city intends to be carbon-neutral by 2025, it’s likely that the city will retain their spot at the top for many years. With its many bike paths and clean, cobbled streets, Copenhagen isn’t just green, it’s also beautifully landscaped too.

Today I’m doing a comparative wear test. And by that I mean I’m wearing conventional makeup that I currently own one day, seeing how it wears, and then wearing zero waste makeup the next day to see how it stacks up. Get it? Eh, well, hopefully it will make more sense once you watch the video. Enjoy!
