In honor of St. Patrick’s Day and our 2011 Annual Green Matters! Issue, we wanted to give you, our conscientious readers, a few helpful pointers on going “green”—not the feasting, imbibery and debauchery part (though we are huge fans of any holiday that encourages beer consumption)—We’re talking about the other kind of green: recycling, sustainability and organics. The good-for-Mother-Earth kind of green.
You don’t have to go vegan, drive a hybrid or convert your home to solar power (though, of course, this wouldn’t hurt). Even small changes in habit, diet and lifestyle can make a big impact on the world around you.
The individuals and organizations we’ve covered in this year’s Green Matters! Issue each play a different role in our movement toward “green” living, but all of them deserve kudos for their efforts.
So read on, and go green!
