    What is Living Green?Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’re probably well familiar with the slogan “go green” – but what is living green really all about? Living green is all about sustainable living, a lifestyle choice that incorporates several different environmentally friendly practices to deliver a powerful punch against pollution and other environmentally destructive practices.
