Color of Earth !

All these questions and more answered at Mom It Forward's #GNO Tues.!

  • Is "green" something you seek when it's convenient?
  • Is it your way of life?
  • Do you feel the whole concept has jumped the shark?
  • What makes a product "green" for you? Ingredients? Packaging? Reusability?
  • What are examples of the best "green" design you've seen? (please share links) Anything from beauty products to household items to cars to homes.
  • How much does "green" play a part in how you shop in 2009?
  • Would you pay more for a "green" product? Or purposefully choose a "green" product over a "non-green" product?
  • If someone is seeking a "greener" lifestyle, what are the most convenient/easy products or behaviors to adapt. Where's a good place to start?
  • Ever seen a silly or unbelievable "green" claim? A product that has no business claiming "green" but tries to do so anyway? Share, please. (I recently saw aprons touted as a "green" product because they keep your clothes cleaner which means less laundry. I'm skeptical.)
  • How do you envision "green" living? Removing toxins from your home? Living close to the land by eating food you grow yourself? Trying for a carbon neutral footprint by planting trees after a plane ride?
