Streetsblog vs. Copenhagen: Who’s Greener?

bog_vote_pg_view_vote.jpgWhen it comes to promoting environmentally sound transportation, is Streetsblog better than a Prius? If you think so, cast your vote for the Livable Streets Initiative in the Treehugger "Best of Green" contest.

There are 17 entries in the "Cars and Transportation" category, ranging from "Best City for Public Transit" (Bogota) to "Best Freight Shipping Innovation" (giant kites attached to cargo ships). We’ve been selected "Best Green Transportation Advocacy," and as of now we’re neck and neck with Copenhagen ("Best City to be a Cyclist") in the overall competition.

Nominees are ranked by readers on a scale of 1 to 10. You can read about them here, or skip directly to the voting here. Voting ends at midnight tonight.

Let’s show those Danes who’s boss.
