How “Green” is America?

Okay, so we are cutting back on plastic bags and saying no to Styrofoam. We make green choices…when it is easy. And as far as we are concerned, here in America, we are doing a great job of being “green.” However, we aren’t as “green” as we think we are. Studies show that American consumers’ behavior is some of the least sustainable of all of the 17 countries studied. The only countries whose consumers’ behavior is less sustainable than ours are Canada and France.

Changes need to start at the top, within the government. However, individuals need to take responsibility for themselves as well. Living a more sustainable lifestyle isn’t hard, but it does require SOME work.

What do you think? Are you a sustainable American? We love to hear from you!
