      "Go Green", "Reduce-Reuse-Recycle" these are terms and slogans that we have been hearing for years. But what do they really mean?

Society as a whole may be making attempts to be more environmentally active, however, most consumers have only considered what they are purchasing, not the amount they are purchasing. We are called consumers because that is what we do- consume, a lot. But what if what we continued to consume was actually good for the earth as well as the economy?
