NOT LIME, NOT OLIVE, NOT AVOCADO
Being "green" these days has nothing to do with the color.
Instead, it means contractors and municipalities are using environmentally friendly materials when they build or renovate homes and other structures.
It means they landscape with plants that require less water or build with plywood from trees grown in renewable forests. It means they only install energy efficient heating and air-conditioning systems.
It also means they use paints and glues that don't contribute to greenhouse gases.
Of course, if you don't know any better, sometimes you accidentally sit down on the job.
But for our children's and grandchildren's future, let's hope this "green" (not chartreuse) thing will catch on.
Listen before it's too late.
