  • Because of Spark we became flexitarians and planted a herb garden. It just gets better and better! Thanks for this wonderful article! Next thing we, my hubby and me, will be working on is cycle instead of using the car. We are in the process of buying a second bike. Maybe I will do that today, in response to this awesome information!
    I LOVE SPARK! Thank you, thank you!
  • I just started going more green and I feel like I'm contributing to a cause. I eat organic whenever possible, use green cleaner, have my own herb garden (saving me lots of money), and supporting my local CSA.
  • I've had a deal of success with herbs, so this year I have planted new herbs, potatoes- red and white- and onions. The tomato seeds aren't quite ready, but I will plant them too
  • Great suggestions! I'm already doing a couple of these, but this article has given me more ideas. Thanks!
  • I love this article.I didn't know I was as green as I was. I am starting my plants in a couple of weeks so t have fresh salad stuff. I don't have alot of room but it don't take to much for some stuff.I have started using cloth car get over 35 miles to the gallon.I wish I was able to walk and get my grocery"s but not suppose to carry over 5 lbs at a time.Will continue to do what I can where possible, I also don't do drive thrus and I don't eat beef and very little pork.Nice to know all this.;
  • What an interesting, info-packed and useful article. Thanks!
  • I love this article! This year I plan on biking or walking more places that are further away (over one mile) such as my daughter's martial arts class and the local Wal-Mart. Now that my youngest child can sit in a seat by herself it will be much easier to take the bike and bring the kids in the bike trailer (which has a small trunk and detaches into a stroller!).
    I'm looking forward to riding my bicycle to work this summer. It's a 10 mile round trip and I'll be toned and trim as a bonus! Woo-Hoo!
  • I really enjoyed this! It has inspired me to walk and bike more in my neighborhood. It's also great to read through the comments about all the positive things others are doing for their health and for the planet.
  • Love the sound of this and i love to walk so i think we will walk more and drive less...
  • I think it's hilarious to read about someone saying cows are "bad" because they flatulate. Nearly every life form on earth does so and the small amount of greenhouse gases that are produced are a side note.

    Meat is also much healthier for you if you buy grass raised beef instead of normal store beef.
  • Great article! I don't consider myself very green, but at least I don't own an SUV and I walk to school (when the weather is nice)... I am a flexitarian (had no idea that this is actually good for the environment until I read this article). I've been using baking soda to clean my stove and other appliances in the kitchen. I actually find it much better than the chemical substances I was using before.
  • Great article, these are sound ideas that can be easily implemented. Keep in mind that while there are many great health reasons to go organic, being better for the environment may not be one of them:
