    The biggest way we have gone green is that we rent a garden plot and plant our own vegetables to eat and share!

    We have started gardening, which is not only healthier, but saves gas because we don’t go to the store as often.

  43. Jess

    We have gone green by using reusable shopping bags, composting, starting a small organic garden, buying Energy Star appliances, and driving fuel efficient car. Every little bit helps!
