Do you live "green"?

Do you make an effort to eat organic foods, buy enviromentally friendly products and conserve resources when possible, or is it something you don't really think about. Does thinking about the future of our planet concern you or do you think everything will be fine? Is there such a thing as taking it too far? How far would you (or do you) go to reduce your impact on the earth? Do you have any tips for people who are trying to make their lives and their households more "green"? I honestly want to know your opinions on the topic, both positive and negative. Any and all input and suggestions are welcome!

I am trying to. But it's not easy as most of the stuff sold to the market are not organic or not an environment friendly. But given a chance I will definitely go "green". Because I know that will also improve my health and my environment.

I know what you mean. Sometimes the more enviromentally friendly products can be harder to find, not to mention more expensive! That's the part that I struggle with. As long as I can afford to, I will always choose a product that is good for my family's health AND the health of the enviroment over one that is filled with chemicals, pollutants, horomones, antibiotics, and god knows what else. Do you have any tips or suggestions for people who are just starting to change their lifestyle over to a greener one?

Let's see her, I use natural cleaning products (sometimes I'm lazy and buy them), I try to buy as much organic as possible, I use cloth menstrual pads and wash them, I used cloth diapers on my son, and I recycle just about anything I can. I don't see anything negative about trying to do more green things.
