Green living is a phrase that means having a lifestyle in which you think about how your actions affect and impact on the environment. Not just your immediate surroundings, but the wider global environment. Green living is about conserving energy, recycling, taking care not to dispose of waste in a way that will add to the waste burden of your local environment. Using fuel wisely and living in a way that minimises your contribution to greenhouse gases and global warming. It means taking a shower instead of a bath, using cotton or canvas shopping bags instead to plastic carrier bags, growing a few of your own vegetables, cutting down on foreign holidays that involve air travel, using sources of power that are renewable - solar power, wind power, hydroelectric power.
