What is Green Living?

Green living is a lifestyle that recognizes that the decisions we make regarding the products or services we consume have an impact on the health of our lives.

Green living is achieved through a number of factors including:

  • Foods we eat
  • Products we use in our homes
  • How we Reduce our consumption
  • How we find unique ways to Reuse products
  • How we Recycle materials once we are done with them

You don’t need to install solar panels to have a green lifestyle. While that may help, the little decisions made throughout the day can have just as significant an impact.

This also includes fundamental liberties such as access to education systems, healthcare, real employment, social justice, and a fair government.
