For years most of us have taken our environment and our interaction with the natural world for granted. As we become more aware of the intricate interrelatedness of our actions and consequences in the natural world we may begin to think about acting differently. Change comes slowly as old habits are hard to break. Once the decision is made to become more conscious about our unconscious behavior change begins. We move from “I don’t know what I don’t know” to “I now know what I didn’t know before”.
Green is a conscious way of being. You can go green by degree. When does that start? The moment you make choices that move toward environmental sustainability you have gotten on the green bandwagon. Every decision you make can broaden and deepen your commitment to live a green and sustainable lifestyle. That’s true whether you are an individual or a large corporation.
One concrete example of a behavioral shift resulting in enormous change is as simple as changing a light bulb. And this is no joke! According to the Environmental protection agency, if every American household replaced one of its current lights with a compact florescent light bulb (CLF), the energy saved could light more than 2.5 million homes for a year and prevent greenhouse gasses equivalent to the emissions of nearly 800,000 cars!
