Note from the Editor
Welcome to the spring issue of Living Green!
We're a little magazine with a big dream: green America one home at a time. Heres the latest information on how to do it. Weve made it fun, and weve made it as easy as falling off a log.
What is living green? It's simply a shift of consciousness. We make a leap in our mind that "green" is who we are--we are going to tread more lightly on the planet. Once we take that step we begin to see the profound effect our actions have on ourselves, those we love, the world around us. We've gained a heightened sense of awareness.
So what do we do next? Being conscious of what and how we consume is a fine place to start. And that's what Green Living is all about. Each issue explores an aspect of everyday living and how to approach it with a more environmentally sensitive touch. Every issue's theme focuses on gaining and maintaining our green awareness.
Finally, every issue features a current installment of the Green Home Salon, a forum for thoughtful, in-depth discussion of environmental issues. In each Salon we interview leading experts in the field, sparking a spirited discussion. Each Salon then takes on a life of its own, spawning new directions for discussion based on the live, online dialogue. Please tune in and turn on!
We can all live a little bit more green. It's not that hard. And if we did, the ripples from these small changes could amplify, and create a tidal wave that could wash this country clean.
I told you it was a big dream. But don't be daunted. Everything starts as a dream.
