The mission of this site is to make "going green" simple to understand, and will help people focus on the most influential things we can support, that will eventually have the biggest impact on our planet
Here are a couple questions we would like to provide you answers to...
With this knowledge, we can properly focus our resources and money on the efforts that will give us the biggest "bang for our buck"!
We also want to provide you with a simple way to monitor how we (United States) are changing the actual numbers, so we know if all our efforts are making a difference or not. The Department of Energy has a huge database of information about this topic, we just want to make it easier for you to make sense of it, so you can see what impact your actions will have on the big picture of "going green"!
You can also review numerous data charts from Environmental Leader.
Here is an example of a chart we like to monitor...
We also attempted to provide sources of our information as much as possible, so you can see why we added or left off an action from the list. We have some actions that have not made it onto our site, because we haven't found enough evidence supporting it, or don't know about it. Please contact us if we are missing something, or you don't agree with our statements.

"I found good uses for the junk strewn around our rural property. TV sets make good plant stands for my vegetable garden containers. I used old washtubs and enamel cookware for planting herbs, beets and cabbages. A worn out fiberglass canoe made a fine onion, garlic and spinach bed. A wood bookcase on its side planted in rows of carrots and swiss chard made a raised bed and keeps the rabbits out. Even old tires work well with marigolds and trailing nasturtiums. It really cleaned up my yard and it's useful and decorative. P.S. Broken microwave ovens keep your garden tools dry and handy right where you need them."
