Green Business – Thumbs Up!
Why choose to go green? Is it because our dollars are green or is it to make the future more sustainable? Going Green can be a simple process such as turning off the lights and faucets, reusing plastic bags, recycling your products or purchasing environmentally friendly products or services. These are the basic steps of going green, but lets start thinking of the “Bigger Picture” which lies ahead of us because it is about a better future by not wasting our resources but utilizing them environmentally effectively. Now let us look into the ways of going green. One should not confuse the term “going green” with the term ‘sustainability”, which are two different terms that should not be used interchangeably.
