SpareFoot Portland giveaway

A lot of cities are green with envy when it comes to Portland, OR. Why? Portland regularly pops up on lists of the greenest cities in America.

In 2012, Portland topped Travel + Leisure’s list of America’s Greenest Cities, in part because one-fourth of the city is shaded by trees and because 288 parks dot the city. For decades, Portland has been embracing green space in its urban planning.

It’s also a green city in the energy-consciousness sense. Portland ranks as one of the most bike-friendly cities in the U.S., if not the most bike-friendly; it was the first U.S. city to adopt a plan to cut greenhouse emissions; and it boasts dozens of buildings that meet or beat sustainability standards.

Now, SpareFoot is celebrating the greenness of Portland with our Clean & Green Portland Giveaway. In the giveaway, one household in the Portland area will receive a $300 gift card for an eco-friendly cleaning from Portland’s ECOMAIDS.

If you’re in the Portland area, how do you win?
