Post Date:03/25/2019

The City of Olathe has been awarded the Greenest City Award for the state of Kansas by Insurify. This honor goes out to the city with the most environmentally-conscious living and driving practices in each state.

Cities were awarded higher scores for having eco-conscious driving practices, green vehicle features, low urban sprawl, healthy air quality, dedicated park space, and renewable electricity programs. The community with the highest score from each state was identified to form the winner’s roster.

“Our natural environment is a finite and precious resource,” said Insurify CEO Snejina Zacharia. “Appreciating and protecting it is a virtue, and those who practice it should be recognized.”
