    Default environmental friendly or environmentally friendly?

    The city will be environmental friendly.

    The city will be environmentally friendly.

    Which sounds better?

    Or, is there a phrase 'environment friendly'?

    It should be "environmentally friendly" but you will often see "environment friendly". "Environmental friendly" is not correct.

    ***neither a teacher nor native-speaker***


    1) For the first sentence, I'd say;
    The city will be friendly to environment.

    2) It's okay, check the link;
    Environmentally friendly - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
