How Green Are You? (Comments & Reviews)


I don't buy organic- we grow our own. I live on a farm so we recycle almost everything. there are no wasted table scraps as they are fed to the chickens or cows. it is a simple lifestyle but much healthier.

We were contemplating purchasing a new vehicle when the 2'nd Prius came out. Figuring that we were wanting to purchase a new vehicle, something that was more "politically correct". We looked at a variety of vehicles, contemplating what would be the best choice for us (husband and me). It really did take a long time to make a decision, but finally we decided that the Prius would be our best buy. It had many good features that were standard.

After about 4 years, we're still glad to have the Prius. We have been extremely happy about our Prius. If push came to shove, I believe that we would make the same choice!

I am growing my own vegetables and composting and our community recycles all our cans, plastic, glass, paper, yard waste, etc. I also ride my bike to work and when I can't I drive a small vehicle.

I buy what I want, eat what I want and always have.

I am 74 years old and in perfect health.

I don't go to doctors, which has helped me immensely!

I do walk a lot and get plenty of exercise, which is the key.

Just in case this is the only life I have, I intend to enjoy it.

If I had to eat like that, I'd give up eating altogether.

One of my greatest enjoyments is gourmet food and drink.
This is my life! I think I can stay healthy and exercise
without eating food that doesn't even sound appetizing.

Eat what you want, your body will follow. :-)

I do not buy organic unless it is on sale. I use any cleaning product that makes the job easier. I drive a regular gas car. Now you tell me how green am I

I do none of those things. At least half of the products produced organically make little to no difference on your health as opposed to their alternative. Also, the classification of what makes something organic or no is kind of BS. For example, walking through a farmers market you will see products grown and procuded locally, farmed organically, that are fresher and better by most standards than products found in your grocery store that have been shipped thousands of miles, but do not meet the criteria to be labeled as organic because of things only really relevent to mass production farmers.

Green kitchen products... okay, maybe some food for though.

Hybrids... HAH! The simple fact of the matter is the carbon footprint involved with producing even one hybrid offsets the benefit. They are not even close to green. What would be environmentally responsible would be to drive the car you have until it is beyond repair. Actually, what would be more environmentally responsible, and better for your health would be to get off your butt and walk or ride a bike. I've managed the past 22 years without a car, anyone who says it can't be done isn't really trying.
