What It Means To Be Green

I am going to post a mini-series on what it means to be green. It's a term that is being used more frequently, especially here in Austin, and as I change my lifestyle, I'm slowly adapting to a greener life as well.

As a starting point, I found a survey from Conservation International that allowed me to see how eco-friendly I already am (or possibly not be). I scored a 51 out of 75, which makes me an Eco-Ally, but this score was the bottom of the barrel for being an ally for the environment, so it looks like I have a lot to learn!

How eco-friendly are you?

PS Thanks for all the warm compliments from my weigh-in. I'm going to do a spot check tomorrow to see where things stand.

Funny enough, I also started going greener, the healthier I got. Am now using eco-friendly organic detergents and far less plastic.

Well done!

Michelle, I can't thank you enough for this post and the link! I've also become more diligent about converting to a greener lifestyle, and I look forward to reading your series.
