Why Is “Green” Important?

If one thinks about it, there are over six billion of us humans on earth today breathing, eating, drinking, creating waste of all sorts and using up “stuff” which probably doesn’t have an inexhaustible supply. We need to rethink the methods and traditions we have used to live and prosper as a society – some are OK but others should be changed.

Sometimes there are laws that we are following; just complying with California’s building codes goes a long way towards being “green”.
