What does going green mean
Going green is defined as making more environmentally friendly decisions such as to "reduce, reuse and recycle."
Reasons for Going Green
a.      Endangered animals, deforestation, global warming and growing landfills are having a detrimental effect on planet earth, and some day may make the planet a very unpleasant place to live.
b.      Going green involves taking steps to minimize the damage humans are doing; to live an environmentally responsible life, and to make choices that will help preserve the earth and its non-renewable resources instead of destroying them.
c.      By eating natural, organic, locally produced foods, you save on carbon emissions, limit the use of dangerous pesticides and have a healthier meal.
d.      An example of going green is when you switch your light bulbs to compact fluorescent lamps and start recycling.
e.      Another example of going green is to recycle and buy recycled products.
