Green Lifestyle

Living Green

One of the best global innovations of the 21st century has been the green lifestyle. A few years before Al Gore blew the trumpet, no one was seriously thinking about the planet's well being. Today "go green" is the new mantra. I sometimes wish that everyone would live in a more eco friendly way because the lifestyle benefits are amazing.
