I thought I was eating green. I learned that there’s more that it’s simple and easy for me to do. I love having the handy list of Dirty Dozen foods, so when I go shopping, I know what I really should buy organic.

It seemed weird that a Green Gal showed up at my door asking me if I care about being green. The next week, there was that Green Gal again with a “Green Gift Gag” for me! Nice. It’s like there’s this Green army that is doing a grass-roots effort to encourage people to be more green. They make green interesting. They make green fun. Go Green by Friday!

I have been pretty green. With Green by Friday, I’m acknowledged for carrying a reusable sports bottle and bag. They say, “Congratulations, I caught you being green. I may even win a prize!” It makes me feel like doing more to be green. I like it.

I always thought being green was about saving the world. That’s too lofty for me. It seemed too big. Besides, green people seemed so smug and arrogant. Green by Friday is different. I learned common sense ideas about choices and actions that make a difference to me, to my family, and to my community.

It’s not just about saving the world – it’s about saving money, it’s about being smarter – getting a better value – from what I spend. It’s not about being “superior” in my food choices, it’s about not eating poison and hormones. It’s not just a “right” thing to do – there are loads of benefits to me personally – in the money I save, the healthier habits I am initiating, and shopping local to strengthen the economy of MY community.
