Going Green in Honor of St. Patrick’s Day
Nowadays, the world is all about ‘going green’ in our actions by recycling, using less water, etc. With a million messages coming at us from all areas (news, politics, fashion, and even technology), it’s easy to get caught up in the big picture without realizing how your actions stack up.
The truth is, that everything we do every day has an impact on the planet — good or bad. The good news is that as an individual you have the power to control most of your choices and, therefore, the impact you create. By embracing a greener lifestyle, you can also improve your health, pad your bank account, and ultimately, improve your overall quality of life.
We always make an effort to go green whenever possible: our newsletters that we distribute to our neighborhood (the historic “Wood Streets” in Riverside, California) are printed on recycled and recyclable paper, we ride our bicycles whenever possible, we use CFL (compact fluorescent) light bulbs, use off-peak electricity, wash laundry in cold water, pay bills online, shop with reusable bags, drink from stainless steel reusable water bottles, and shop at farmer’s markets.
We wish everyone a HAPPY ST. PATRICK’S DAY — whether you swig a green drink, wear a green shirt, or perform a green deed like recycling plastic bottles!
