Urban and Eco-Friendly: St Paul Offers Green Living
St Paul has embraced green living in a big way. If you’re eco-aware, and looking for a community that gets you, you’ll find support and inspiration in St Paul and the Twin Cities.
St Paul wants to help you achieve an energy-efficient workplace. The city’s District Energy also supports condos, and other multi-family residences.
Light rail and green buses run throughout St Paul. Farmers’ markets bring fresh produce to the table, while co-ops such as Hampden Park Food Cooperative and Mississippi Market Co-op bring you plenty of low-mile foods. St Paul’s rich fabric of neighborhoods are renowned as very walkable and market-centered.
Home Runs for the Sustainability Team
Love baseball? Did you know Target Field earned LEED Gold recertification this year?
Some of the venue’s most brilliant features are the Pentair Rain Water Recycle System, which has reclaimed more than 19 million gallons of water so far. The venue’s 2,280-square-foot Living Wall grows thousands of junipers, all irrigated with rain water.
Target Field (in Minneapolis) has recycled well over 10 thousand tons of waste, and made compostable straws and utensils standard.
And St Paul’s own CHS Field has a solar power array, made possible by a grant from Xcel Energy

St Paul hosts two vital eco-events:
- The Green Schools Conference & Expo: a massive annual expo for green school builders, administrators, city planners, and teachers.
- The IMPACT Conference: the Midwest region’s main green builders’ conference.
St Paul leadership recognizes that buildings are a major element in climate action. Green building principles are helping the Twin Cities curb greenhouse emissions, conserve our resources, and connect people with the elements of nature in the city.
