What does it mean to “go green?”

I am starting this blog as a way to collect and examine information regarding all aspects of becoming a green consumer and activist. Going “green” means to learn about and engage in sustainable activities that will help our planet and ourselves. Think of it as a broader take on the concept of Reduce/Reuse/Recycle. In each post, I will be highlighting a particular area of environmental concern, as well as providing easy ways the average person can use this information to make more Earth-conscious decisions and help protect our environment. The first step in changing is always the hardest, but knowledge is power!
