Can You "Go Green" for a month?

I recently read about a family who pledged to "go green" for a month. For those of you who don't know what "go green" means: it means that you do everything as environmentally friendly as you can. That means using ONLY organic, energy saving, and safe products (no gas guzzling, pollution spewing SUVs!). Do you think you could "go green" for a month or more? Do you think it would make any significant impact on your life and/or the environment?

That's so great. I think for the most part my husband and I "go green" all the time. We recycle and we use all environmentally safe products including cleaning products from Melaleuca. We have a very fuel sufficient car and we walk whenever possible. I am within walking distance of my post office, bank, library, pharmacy, and grocery store so it saves us big time from having to drive. Helping the environment has also in many ways helped my pocket book.

Allow me to applaud you as well as your husband. I very much admire people such as yourselves who not only care about the environment, but also understand their role in protecting it. Few people realize that their actions (however small) contribute to the good health or detriment of the earth. Even fewer realize, like you have, that going green is a helping hand for their finances as well. I thank you kindly for your response. Have a very "green" day!
