Being “green” has a variety of definitions depending on who you’re talking to. Some of us have just started paying attention to environmental issues while others have spent years adjusting their lifestyle to become a green machine! No matter where any of us are on the spectrum there’s always something we can learn.
In order to think green it’s helpful to have a starting point. That’s why I love the resources on Practically Green.
