The United States government should take the lead in urging Americans to go green. They have a website called USA.gov. I thought it would be interesting to see what our government has to say about going green so I surfer over and gave it a look. Here is what I found.
The very first thing they have on their page is titled: Going Green - Be a Green Consumer
The article states that we should practice environmentally friendly and ecologically responsible lifestyle such as switching to CFL lightbulbs. They go further to talk about being able to sustain our natural resources.
Here are he other tips USA.gov gives us.
- Turning your thermostat down two degrees in winter and up two degrees in summer.
- Making sure your walls and ceilings are well insulated.
- Replacing bathroom and kitchen faucets with low-flow models.
The idea of this blog is to give people information and have them practice environmentally friendly and ecologically safe practices. I applaud the government site for doing the same. I do not think we should force people to do more than they feel comfortable doing because, once practicing the easy green stuff, they will usually move on to the more difficult practices.
