I don't have enough data to answer this question.  One of the most important things is how much energy the vacuum uses (because energy generation often creates a lot of pollution).  The US EPA does not have an energy star program for vacuums, but if you want to see technical info in the scoping report see http://www.energystar.gov/ia/products/downloads/ENERGY_STAR_Scoping_Report_Vacuums.pdf
It looks to me like bagless vacuums have a higher wattage than bagged vacuums, in general.

Bissell Healthy Home Vacuum for sure

I think that the Bissell Healthy Home Vacuum Model 16N5 (Dark Aloeminium Green) is the most Eco-Friendly Vacuum.

The main reason I think it is most Eco-Friendly is because it doesn't use disposable bags. My last vacuum had those paper/plastic hybrid bags that were expensive and NOT able to be recycled. I was throwing those old bags away every couple of weeks because they would smell.

Second, The pre-motor Foam Filter is Washable, so nothing to throw away or replace.

Third, this vacuum is well built, sturdy and will last a long time. And having a Five year warranty from Bissell, I won't be replacing it and throwing away an old vacuum to add to the landfill.

Fourth, this vacuum has a Lifetime Belt, so NO more throwing away rubber belts every couple of months that are made from petroleum products!
