What does it mean to be "Green" or "Sustainable"?

Going Green involves practices and product choices that conserve energy, water, and other limited natural resources. Going Green reduces waste through reuse, recycling, composting, and more! Sustainable living places great value on meeting the needs of the current generation without compromising the ability of future generations to live happy, healthy, and successful lives.
