|Favorite green websites/publications:
||I find it very difficult to find green communities that care, and I took a liking to this site after reading it prior registering. I really enjoy this community as it is full of friendly people - helping each other.
|Favorite non-profit organization
Crohn's & Colitis Foundation
I am very sensitive to toxic things. Organic, natural, & green things tend to bother me less.
|If I could change one thing in the world, it would be:
||I believe it all begins with individual outlook, perspective, and attitude.
|I think the most important environmental issue is:
||Waste, recycling, and efficiency.
|The greenest thing I do is:
||I try to be economical and efficient - using non disposable items in the house, avoiding harsh chemicals, walk/bicycle when I can, etc... I try to learn a little every day!
|What does "sustainability" mean to me:
||Sustainability - collective efforts that will never result in depletion of mother earth.
|Why am I passionate about being green?
||Because there would be fewer health and ecological problems if we were green from the get-go. I grew up in a town that possessed one of the most polluted sites in the world - Alcyon Lake in Pitman, NJ. I've seen deformed animals, fish, and - cancer patients too! Growing up a mile away from the antithesis of "green" showed me the reality and importance of caring for our environment.
||I'm a simple person, passionate about making core-changes. I sell LED lighting, I love my golden retriever, and I'm just a person who appreciates the people and environment around me.
