    Eat more greens.

    In a suitcase or backpack.

    Stop using anything made of petroleum, including plastics. That means no more netbook, cellphone, computer, TV, iPod, car, or any other convenience we're used to. Not even margarine. But I can still use my free weights, so it's all good.

    I think the changes that are needed are not possible. But I am "green" just because it's worth a try.

    I say the best way to go green is to not have children which will use up more resources, thereby we can continue our current lifestyle(s) with no ill effects. icon_rolleyes.gif

    My plans are simple. Don't have any kids.

    Hey Paul,

    perhaps not all changes are seemingly impossible. While it is difficult to supplement plastics or banish them from our lives completely, what we can try is to reduce, reuse and recycle. Simple activities like switching the lights out when exiting a room or shutting down the computer when it is not needed would also make a difference.. using public transport on a frequent basis, bringing home your shopping in a cloth bag, using your own coffee mug and not using a paper cup at the coffee vending machine are also subtle lifestyle changes that can make a difference..

    Little drops of water..

    Happy World Environment Day..

    My team and I are planning an event tomorrow to educate kids about environmental concerns and to spread awareness. I am hoping that the event goes off well. icon_smile.gif
