My world is green over here in Portland folks. We are raised green: we recycle, we know how to deal with moss, we are aware of the distinct difference between garbage, compost and reusables. It's our identity- and I kinda dig it. My trash goes out once every 1-2 weeks while my recycling is out the door every two days: it's my contribution to 'Mother Earth'.
This is all further reinforced when I go visit my (very, very lovely) family in the Midwest and at the end of a long, boisterous family reunion I ask where I can put the pop cans from the previous days. Their response: "The garbage." Cue the Oregonian Stroke: "NOOOOOO". We must take care of our environment! It's engrained in us all in my neck of the woods. And perhaps this is inspired by the fact that I enjoy the greenery in Portland on a daily basis ... but also because I'm less than an hour from not only the mountain.. but the beach. And on Labor Day weekend The Boy and I took full advantage of that beautiful scenery (along with my family puppy I was housesitting while my family was out of town):
What about your neck-of-the-woods? Is 'Go Green!' a mantra?? Do tell!
