Living Green

Our choices and behaviors have an effect that reach across the world today and on to future generations. What we buy, what we do or do not recycle, what we throw away impacts an evermore interconnected planet. If we want to maintain the standard of living we currently enjoy and pass it on, it will take an all-hands effort to preserve the foundation of that standard of living – clean air, water and soil.
