"Wichita's Economy Is Greener Than You Think"

"No one would confuse Wichita as a home for tree huggers, but even Wichita has taken its place in the green economy in recent years.

Wichita actually has thousands of jobs tied to improving the environment — in businesses such as organic farming, insulated building materials and wind turbine parts.

But what makes the green economy different today is that it also attracts people who simply want to do well — as in, make money — rather than people who want to do good."
