    I try to help save the earth when I can. I don't go out of my way. I'm too lazy to walk 30 seconds to the lounge and throw away my bottle so I throw it in my trash. I collect my cans in my office then give it to someone less fortunate. At home....forgetabout it. Plastic in the trash!

    Why? By going green you can help keep your city clean, and save some money in the process.

    I'm for it when it saves money, and keeps the air and water clean.
    Against it when it is just another lever for politicians to pry money out of our pockets with.

    Haha, but I do my part. I recycle and make sure not to litter. But I don't go out of my way to help. I want my truck so I'm not going to get a Prius.

    I'm pretty sick of hearing this term as well. The whole notion, while I believe it can have a positive effect on our environment, is one big commercial ploy. You look at everything that says "green" or "eco friendly" or whatever the term the companies use, and these products are higher in price than the reg. ones. If you look at some of the ingredients/chemicals, there isn't much of a difference. It's a disappointment that a good idea that could help the environment is being pig-tailed on by corporations to make a penny out of consumers...

    I think a little common sense and modest effort is a good way to go about it. I don't subsribe to showering in rain water collected on my roof or watering my garden with dishwater.

    I don't litter, bring cloth bags to the store with me and recycle my paper and plastic. These things take little effort.

    I will say that that vortex of partially broken down plastic 2x's the size of Texas in the Pacific is disturbing.

    That and dumping some of the shit (mercury, etc) 'we' dump into the waterways is the kind of stuff that will get us down the road, being as one thing that makes this planet habitable while others are not is the water. We end up ingesting all of that stuff ourselves down the road.

    Only an imbecile could ignore that.

    Going green is a ploy. Its a scam. It was invented to create an industry. A taxable one at that. To sell more expensive shit that we don't need. The only way to go green is to buy less products. Making 10,000,000 chinese lighbulbs is not really the green way to go.

    Take the prius for example. Nickle mined in canada, shipped to europe for processing, then shipped to China to make the batteries, then shipped to Japan for installation.

    Not very green.

    Remember that the liberals are about "feeling good" not about doing good. If a liberal will buy a car that pollutes more but makes them "feel" better about what they are doing, it will be a hit with them.

    you're right. celebrities and politicians will tell you to "go green" while they're flying around in their jets! they want you to give up your trucks or suv while they have their limos!

    I love watching the DIY network but if I hear one more person talk about "going green" or "eco friendly" I'm going to find them and run them over with my not so green truck.

    Like many around here, I'm not against doing my part but I don't walk around my office spouting buzz words just so people notice me. You should have been doing it anyway, you don't need to freaking annoy everyone with it.

    From a home improvement project example: Cork flooring and Bamboo flooring are made for products that renew faster don't require as much mass destruction of forests. The products should be cheaper, but because they are "eco friendly" they are twice the price of oak flooring...just supid.
