It isn’t easy being green

Anywhere you go these days you hear the word “green.” But what does it mean and how do I do it?

Webster’s dictionary defines GREEN as:

a often capitalized :  relating to or being an environmentalist political movement

b :  concerned with or supporting environmentalism

c :  tending to preserve environmental quality (as by being recyclable, biodegradable, or non polluting)
green house

That’s all well and good but what does being GREEN look like and how do I do it? Well thankfully, there’s an app for that. As a matter of fact, there are several. Here are just a few…
