Red Deer in running for greenest city

Red Deer is close to being named Canada’s greenest city.

Red Deer is close to being named Canada’s greenest city.

The Green Grouch competition invites urbanites to log their green or environmental actions on www.thegreengrouch.com. Green deeds like shopping with re-useable bags, washing laundry in cold water or checking tire pressure will earn green points.

Last year, Grande Prairie challenged Red Deer to put its environmental stewardship to the test.

Red Deer is in top spot with 68,675 points, followed closely by Grande Prairie with 67,004 points and Calgary with 5,538 points.

The community with the most points will earn the bragging rights as the greenest city in Canada.

Red Deerians are encouraged to log their green actions on the website.

Participants can log in every week and complete a weekly points checklist. The contest ends on April 22, 2012.
