    I'm working on a paper and I need responses to the following question:

    Where do you sit on the "green" spectrum? You work hard at being green, you are green only when it is convenient or you just can't be bothered? Why? What sorts of things do you do that define your place on the "green" spectrum?


    Examples of:

    making an effort: Take recycling to a recycling depot, use green cleaning products regardless of cost and more elbow grease, eat organic food

    Only when convenient: Use curbside recycling, use some green cleaning products, but only when they are convenient or of similar cost, eat some organic food, to save money

    Can't be bothered: Never recycle unless there is money involved (like returning drink containers for deposit), throw all other refuse into the landfill, use toxic cleaning products to get desired results,

    You get the idea.

    There will be NO judgement involved. I am just trying to assemble some real life views.

    For those who wish to participate, please send me a PM answering the questions along with your real first and last name (I require this in order to make the proper citations and give credit where it is due).

    sent a pm. I think I'd probably count on the "making an effort end".

    I think the least green thing I do is related to where I live. I live in a hot climate, in a relatively large home that is not designed for the climate which I air condition. I also have a lawn in an area with little rain.

    I pay to recycle (WHAT?!), use only organic chicken feed, flour, milk, eggs, yogurt, sugar, apples, fruit and vegetables.. can't afford organic butter/cheese.... drive as little as possible, use reusable water bottles, and a brita filter. redirect spring water to water the garden, grow and can my own applesauce and jams, and try to buy as little processed foods as possible. Make my own granola, bread, pizza, burritos......

    Thank you to all who have responded so far. What I need now are responses from those who fall in the can't be bothered category.
