Interesting... without even realizing it, I'm pretty green!
I live in Downtown Detroit, which is notoriously not green...No recycle program, no transit system, etc.
I live, work, and play in my community so I don't keep a car, when I need one, I rent it. For the most part, I ride my bike, outfitted with saddlebags, I do most of my shopping and various other errands while racking up the cardio points.
I quit eating red meat in the eighties, for no reason other than, I didn't feel good after eating it.
I carry reusable bags when I shop in the neighborhood, because it's more convenient, and I shop at the local farmers market (Eastern Market) every weekend.
I don't drink bottled water or soda pop, so I'm not discarding those horrid plastic bottles.
And most importantly, I never had children, so I didn't contribute a ton of soiled diapers to the landfills.
All & all, I'm feeling pretty Eco Friendly!
