Can Las Vegas Really go Green?
The neon-drenched city in the middle of the Nevada desert has been inching toward sustainability for a few years. Peter Greenberg chronicled green efforts in Las Vegas back in 2008. Modern Hippie did the same in 2010. Now, the city has taken a couple more interesting steps in the direction of eco-friendliness.
A $50,000 donation from the Consumer Electronics Association is earmarked for a solar installation project at the famous "Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas" sign on the Las Vegas Strip. Elsewhere, MGM Resorts is working toward LEED certification for a new building development.
Nevada is currently ranked tenth in green building states by the U.S. Green Building Council.
