The analysts at Wallethub, conducted a study in which they compared all 50 states in terms of 20 key metrics that speak to the current health of the environment, and the environmental impact of residents’ daily habits.

The data set ranges from total municipal solid waste per capita to energy-efficiency score to carbon-dioxide emissions per capita.
