Going Green

By
Real Estate Agent with The Abrams Group/ Re/Max Realty Services

Why Go Green? You’ve probably noticed that green is everywhere these days--in the news, politics, fashion, and even technology. You can hardly escape it on the Internet, and now with the Planet Green TV network, you can even enjoy eco-friendly entertainment 24 hours a day. That’s all great as far as we’re concerned, but with a million messages and ideas coming at us from all sides, it can be easy to get caught up in the "green" moment,switching to organic foods, turning down the thermostat, recycling, say -- without thinking about the big picture of how your actions stack up. While it's easy to get overwhelmed, it's also simple to begin making a positive impact. The truth is that everything single thing we do every day has an impact on the planet -- good or bad. The good news is that as an individual you have the power to control most of your choices and, therefore, the impact you create: from where you live to what you buy, eat, and use to light your home to where and how you vacation, to how you shop or vote, you can have global impact. But embracing a greener lifestyle isn't just about helping to preserve equatorial rain forests, it can also mean improving your health, padding your bank account, and, ultimately, improving your overall quality of life. All that and you can save furry animals, too? Why wouldn't anyone want to green? Come back everyday to see new ways to go green. E mail me if you have other ideas to share on how to go green, save money and save our planet.

Lisa - as we think green, it's important to look at the ramifications. If saving one fuel means using even more of another fuel, that's hardly saving the environment.

Sharon,

I agree with you.  We are still far off from finding an alternative fuel utilizing renewable resources.

If we can send a person to the moon, why cant we figure out how to fuel cars with rain water, grass clippings, kudzu etc?
