    How "Green" Are You?

    Do you consider yourself a "green" person? Do you recycle products and avoid polluting your environment? The official greens in the West are usually leftists, but that doesn't mean being a bit green is bad, even if we can't always renounce some luxuries.

    Here are some tips to be a greener person, if you aren't already:
    bring your own shopping bags when you shop
    pack your lunch in a reusable lunchbox instead of using bags that you'll throw away
    walk to work/school or use a bike or other non-polluting vehicle
    use public transport instead of own car
    grow own vegetables/fruit or buy from farmers instead of supermarkets
    buy locally instead of going for the international companies
    spend less time when you shower
    boycott animal testing products
    buy environmentally friendly cleaning products or create own cleaning products from natural ingredients
    use sponges to clean up in the kitchen instead of napkins
    turn off the lights and electronics when you leave your home or don't use them
    use biodegradable products
    refill plastic bottles with your own water (preferably boiled, to be safer)
    set washing machines to wash your clothes at lower temperatures

    Any other tips? Some methods of living green don't only save the environment, but they also save some of your money.

    The first "environment" you should start worrying about polluting is your own home. Why do so many nationalists smoke? It's poison, especially if you have kids.

    By the way, these ecoidiot politicians are really hypocrites. Immigrants are another source of pollution in our countries. A lot of problems would be avoided if they were repatriated.

    I must admit for someone who is totally into nature that I am not as green as I can be .First off ,I have a Land Rover ,green on the outside to be sure but not so much I am told on the inside .It is pretty new though ,so that is kind of a plus.I did just start shopping at ALDI supermarket ,that just opened in my area.This is German owned establishment and they are very green ,no shopping bags and many boxes recycleable. Unfortuneately I live in the USA the land of the fat ,and do not have many options.I do have a Brita water filter and use only glass containers as plastic is dangerous

    We are Somewhat Green.......

    We have switched 99% of the light bulbs in our home from incandescents to fluorescents or Compact Fluorescents, that screw into the regular sockets.
    They use a quarter, 1/4th of the Energy that regular bulbs do. Even so we turn off unnecessary lights.
    We recycle many things, metal cans, paper, cardboard, corrugated board, plastic and glass.
    Our water heater is turned down. and our furnace thermostat drops 4 degrees at night.
    We do use the fabric grocery bags that we take back & forth.
    We have a little garden. I want to get a bit of our land fenced so we can let a couple of beef cattle eat the grass & weeds instead of mowing it.

    I guess the one thing I refuse to do is Hanging our laundry out to dry. I much, much prefer an electric dryer, thanks.

    Hmm, I'm green about some things but not about other things.

    I wash dishes by hand and not a dish washer, and this avoids consuming some electricity, but I use the computer frequently. I don't dy my clothes electrically because I've no dryer, so they're just hung and left to dry. I drive my car because the public transport is insalubrious and used by many Gypsies.

    However, I always use my own bags at shopping. That has many advantages indeed. Because here the supermarkets charge you extra for the bag, and often those plastic bags crack open if the load is too heavy. Hence I prefer to use my own bags, made from a resistant material. I use plastic bottles for storing tea and other liquids. I buy vegetables, fruit, egg, meat or dairy from the local peasant market instead of the supermarkets. I don't smoke. I only use fluorescent lights.

    I'd like to be more green, but since I live in the city some things are unavoidable.

    I recycle a little and live sparingly in terms of non-reusables. I'd say I'm a little more environmentally conscious than average.

    Apparently buying a used vehicle instead of any type of new vehicle will also result in a smaller net carbon footprint. Makes sense in terms of the energy and materials put into manufacturing.

    Usually not an option in SA. I drive myself where I need to be, but I bought second hand, don't go for joyrides, and the vehicle itself is not particularly heavy on fuel.

    My landlord does this (with vegetables), but when I asked him about it he told me the only benefit is the satisfaction from growing your own, and that, because of things like fertilizer and insecticide (which has to be manufactured, transported and marketed anyway) and "failed harvests" in part due to moles, he doesn't think he saves any money from doing so, nor have a lesser effect on the environment.

    I live in an already polluted city - not only biologically, but also mentally polluted. The possibilities are limited and the few green things in my life aren't enough to call myself a green nationalist or something like that.

    Green Leftists are the worst type of people.

    Once one tried to argue with me for being 'racist'. Saying it was wrong to oppose Muslim immigrantion and so on. She then went on about rural people in the UK hunting foxes and saying I was evil and supported it. I tried to explain to her that I did not and that it was banned in the Third Reich, but she just ignored it and said I was lying. I then explained how the masses of immigrants require public housing which destorys the forests the foxes live in, but again she ignored it and said I was lying. Eventually I was banned from the forum as a 'racist'. I really do not understand how they can become this stupid.

    bring your own shopping bags when you shop
    Here this has become standard. All the food stores require these.

    pack your lunch in a reusable lunchbox instead of using bags that you'll throw away
    I tend to just buy the food where I am or simply not have anything. I am not sure how good that is.

    walk to work/school or use a bike or other non-polluting vehicle
    I walk 100% of the time, several hours a day. I only get a ride if the weather is exceptionally bad or if I am offered one.

    use public transport instead of own car
    I use the cars of people I know, but only a few times a month.

    grow own vegetables/fruit or buy from farmers instead of supermarkets
    I do this as well. My entire garden is circled with vegetables, herbs, berries, trees, and so on. Most stuff I buy at the store is local, too.

    I am not sure how someone said this was not environmentally friendly? I do not use chemicals at all (besides simple soap water). My tomatos are just as large as the ones at the store.

    boycott animal testing products
    How is that supposed to help? I do not do it anyway (unless it is basic things, like generic shampoo), but I do not see how this will improve the environement. This seems misplaced.

    buy environmentally friendly cleaning products or create own cleaning products from natural ingredients
    Perhaps I should learn more about this. Currently I do not know how to make soaps and so on. It is probably simple.

    refill plastic bottles with your own water (preferably boiled, to be safer)
    Plastic bottles are poisonous. Use glass.

    Most of my water is from France, so I suppose that is acceptable? I have no idea.

    The environment contains not only plants, but also animals, doh. Killing animals without a good reason is not ok.

    Somewhat, I dont drive, I take the bus or walk to get around. When travelling around Norway I take bus or train.
    I dont smoke or drink much. The garbage disposal enterprise in my town encourages recycling so its pretty easy when we have several different dumpsters for different garbage. I try to buy green products, I wish it would have been easier to buy local food.
