Sustainable Saturday - Getting to Green

As we move into a new year it's a time of taking a look back at what we accomplished in the previous year and setting goals for the new one. Here is a tool to aid in your Green Goals for 2010.

If you need even more ideas, read Mom Goes Green's A Happy and Green New Year . . . from A to Z!

Truly what does it mean to be green?

Being green can simply be trying your best to be as environmentally responsible as you can. At our house we constantly struggle with what is the most environmentally responsible choice vs. cost.

Getting to Green is a way to see what you are already doing and what you could be doing better to be an environmentally responsible member of society. This list is by no means complete, but it is a start. As I continue to develop Getting to Green we will discuss many of the items in more detail. Like how do you get started with composting and what are the benefits? How do you make your own cleaning products? How do you find a buying club and what type of products do they sell?

Many of the items listed I have been doing for years (not my entire life . . . I am not Sara Snow!) I am learning and I hope you will join me along this journey as we are Getting (closer) to Green.

I love this list! I am working on a lot of these as well; lots of them we've been doing for a long time too.

I too struggle with green vs cost.

Love your blog!
