Let's Get Green!

The Environment has become a very important topic.

Everyone is trying to live a "green" life. The only problem is that we're only told why we should go green, instead of why and how.

This afternoon, I was listening to CBC Radio's Here and Now and discovered a website that offers answers on how to live a more environmentally-friendly life. The site is called Greenopolis.ca. It's part blog and part directory. What's interesting about the site is that it provides listings of products, services and businesses, that are safe for the environment. For example, let's say you wanted to do some renovations. Instead of getting a contractor from one of the "big box" stores, you can try places that reuse materials like Habitat For Humanity's ReStores.

What I like about the site, is that it offers to make it "easier for busy people to live greener lives guilt-free and down-to-earth." That's a big deal for me because if there's one thing I don't like, it's environmentalists who condemn people without explaining what they're doing wrong or providing alternative methods.

Whether you care about the environment or not, the site offers some good tips. It's essentially, some green food for thought.
