Provincetown Named as one of Top Green Cities in U.S.

Top GreenPROVINCETOWN – Provincetown has been recognized for their environmental efforts and now can add “Top Green Cities in the U.S.” to its list of accolades.

The “Top Green City” designation is presented by Factory Direct Promos to U.S. cities that have taken measures to ban the plastic bag or implement plastic bag fees.

The award was in recognition of Provincetown prohibiting single-use plastic bags as part of their commitment to a greener, sustainable future.

The town issued the ban in April 2015 to reduce litter and the town’s carbon footprint while protecting wildlife and marine life.

In 2011, Provincetown was named one of 86 Green Communities in Massachusetts.
