Just What is "Goin' Green"?

OK, now we're getting down to serious GREEN talk. Just what does "goin' green" mean? 

"Goin' green" means that we are going to do our best to manage our resources and natural environment through changes in public policy and individual behavior (yes, this includes you).

Environmental preservation, chiefly in the United States, is viewed as the strict setting aside of natural resources to prevent damage caused by contact with humans or by certain human activities, such as logging, mining, hunting and fishing. Those are the "biggies" but unless you have a lot of political PULL, you won't make a dent in their policies.

Sooo, what can you do? How can you make your home and your purchases "green friendly"?

Think climate change is too big of a problem to solve? Does asbestos contribute to lung cancer - getting rid of asbestos is no small feat, but the benefits are enormous. Small changes in our everyday lives can make a big difference. Do you use spray deodorant, shaving cream in a can, or spray shortening (Pam for instance) ...ever consider what that is doing to the environment.

Climate change threatens natural communities and human well-being, Each person can make a difference because one small positive act multiplied millions of times produces immense benefits."
