day to day green living

You can become more environmentally aware and responsible in your daily life by participating in a variety of different sustainability actions.The great thing about caring for the environment is that all of us can make a significant difference right at home, school, work, or in the community, by re-thinking and changing our daily habits. 

One step at a time, old habits you never questioned before can be replaced by routines that are more eco-friendly. Once you adopt a new habit, try moving on to another one so that it becomes part of an ongoing journey to support a greener, healthier life.
