“We do not inherit the Earth from our ancestors; we borrow it from our children.”

If you’re reading this, chances are pretty good you’re already interested in living a greener lifestyle.

It's really ok not to understand it; you're not alone. Many are still wondering if it has anything to do with the Jolly Green Giant seen widely on bean cans.
With more than 55% of Americans saying that protecting the environment should be a global priority (as reported by a study from McKinsey & Company), it’s no wonder that green living has become a popular theme. However living green is about a whole lot more than simply jumping on a bandwagon or becoming a more responsible citizen.
