Raleigh Places Fifth Nationally In Offering Eco-Friendly Services*

Raleigh placed fifth in a survey of the greenest U.S. cities. “Thumbtack,” a site self-described as “where you can easily hire local help,” ranked cities on per capita availability of eco-friendly services, as well as the premium charged by some “green” businesses.

Some of the services include: solar panel installation, bicycle repair, chemical-free house cleaning, organic catering, electronics recycling, chemical-free pest control, chemical-free carpet cleaning, sustainable interior design, green architects and home energy audits.  

The top 10 cities are: 1) San Francisco 2) Oakland 3) San Jose 4) Las Vegas 5) Raleigh 6) Columbus, Ohio 7) Seattle and Kansas City, Mo. 8) Denver 9) San Diego.

While not securing a ranking, Charlotte did place third in availability of bike repair.
