Putting green Portland on the map
The map covers everything from fair-trade coffee shops to ecologically responsible schools, and highlights places to avoid - like the city's four Superfund sites. "It's a different approach to the issue of sustainability," says Jason King, a Portland landscape designer who spearheaded the mapping effort. Portland's Green Map is one of over 70 worldwide. Another 175 are in the works, including spreads of Seattle and the Oregon communities, Forest Grove and Sherwood.
