What is The Going Green Couple?
The Going Green Couple follows us, Mr. & Mrs. Green (Not our real names, that would be to ironic), on our journey to living a greener and more sustainable lifestyle. Each month we take on one challenge in hopes of reducing our impact on the environment. During that month we will show you why the challenge matters to the environment; show you how we tackle it; and then show you how you too can go a little greener. You will not find environmental preaching or political debates about global warming. And were not going to show you how to move to the woods and live off the land (Mr. Green hates camping). There’s nothing wrong with those types of blogs, they just don’t tell you what an average person can do to go a little greener. What you will find is practical tips and steps to going green.
Who Is The Going Green Couple?
We’re an average east coast married couple with a house and a dog who are trying make their impact on the environment a little greener. Mrs. Green is a high school Italian teacher and Mr. Green is a web developer/project coordinator who attends law school at night. We’re
not environmentalists (scratch that we are environmentalists) or eco-warriors but we care about the environment in both a pragmatic and hopeful sense. Given the challenges the globe is facing when it comes to climate change we felt it was high-time we do our part to reduce our impact on the planet.
Why The Going Green Couple Blog?
We started this blog for two reasons. One was to help keep us honest and committed to reducing our impact on the environment. We thought if we put our journey out there for people to see it would push us to keep up with our commitment. The other reason is to inspire people to make their own commitment to going green. If we can show people how easy it is to reduce their impact then maybe they will start their own going green journey.
