Green: What does it mean?

"Congratulations, gorgeous, you've found me! Now what are you gonna do with me?"

Now that I've finally decided to join the Blogger community long after it's inception, I plan to use this forum to share with you the "Green" or "Earth-friendly" links, thoughts, ideas, etc. that I find.

Warning: my thoughts are often scattered and disorganized!

Like you, I'm sure, a "Green Lifestyle" has always been something that I've wanted to pursue further but just never bothered to research. Well those days are over, folks! If we don't start making changes in our daily wasteful, little lives right now, the Earth and it's future generations will surely suffer.

Why should you care? I'll tell you why! Because this isn't just about you, my friend! If you have children or grandchildren, it's self-explanatory. How you live affects others - period. And because living responsibly...well, feels good!

Being green simply means making an effort to leave Earth in the same or better condition than when you arrived.
"Leaving a lighter footprint" should be a goal for all of us so that future generations can enjoy these lands as we have.

Green Living Tip #1: Replace lights that you use most with a Compact Fluorescent Light (CFL) Bulb and save energy and $$ with a quickness!

If every American home replaced just one light bulb with an ENERGY STAR, we would save enough energy to light more than 2.5 million homes for a year and prevent greenhouse gases equivalent to the emissions of nearly 800,000 cars.*
