Los Angeles County has handed down to the city of Manhattan Beach an award for being green.

Called the "Green Leadership Award," the county recognized Manhattan Beach for:

  • Using Alternative fuel and electric vehicles
  • Re-landscaping of public property with drought-tolerant gardens
  • Piloting food-waste collection programs
  • Taking steps to prevent pollution of the marine environment
The city picked up the awards Tuesday.

"Each of these programs ties into the city’s broader goals to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, as well as energy and water consumption," said Sona Kalapuran Coffee, environmental programs manager for Manhattan Beach. 

Coffee was selected to receive the 2014 “Chair’s Green Leadership Award” for her efforts to improve environmental sustainability in the community, and the county of Los Angeles.
