I inspire to living a healthier, greener life. I believe that our collective small steps really add-up into making a positive difference to the world we live in, and the legacy we are about to give to our children.
You don't have to label yourself "green" or "organic" to make changes that are good for your family's health, your bank account and the planet!

(1) Why Quitting Smoking is Green
Smoking pollutes the air. Second-hand smoke can affect non-smokers. Don't forget the packaging waste, the cigarette butts and the acres and acres of tobaccos fields that could be put to better use making food for those affected by global warming.
(2) Why Changing Your Meat Habits is Green
The transportation of livestock and their meats has a high carbon footprint. This goes for other animals that produce white meat as well. Eating a chicken may be healthier than eating a cow, but the chicken is still a carbon-intensive animal.
