The U.S. and Canada Green City Index has analyzed the environmental sustainability of 27 major metropolitan areas in both countries. San Francisco was named greenest city in the U.S., followed by New York, Seattle, Denver, and Boston. Vancouver was ranked greenest city in Canada, followed by Toronto, Ottawa, Calgary, and Montreal. The study compared the 27 cities on environmental performance and policies across nine categories. It was conducted by the Economist Intelligence Unit and commissioned by Siemens.

Volcom has joined with Krochet Kids International, a nonprofit lifestyle brand, as part of its Give Back program. The collaboration involves a new line of co-branded hats and tee shirts to be handmade in Northern Uganda by a group of women participating in KKI’s economic development program. In addition to each purchase supporting the women’s program, Volcom will donate a portion of its proceeds to further reinforce KKI programs. Volcom’s Give Back Series donates a percentage of proceeds directly to community-based nonprofits.
