Big problems call for small solutions.
Climate change, pollution, energy dependence - all big problems. But if enough of us make lots of little changes in the way we live, we can turn the tide on those problems.
The Green Year is your guide to taking one small step every day toward becoming part of the solution. For each day of the year it offers one simple inexpensive activity that will help reduce your energy consumption, lower your carbon footprint, and bring you closer to sustainable living.
At the end of the year, you'll have new habits and an efficient lifestyle that will make a big difference for your family and our planet. As a bonus, you'll even save money!
