With all the talk in the media of green, it's exciting I must admit. I've been a fan of the green movement for a long time. I remember in high school going to the local thrift store and buying my clothes because I was freaked out about the landfill filling up with fashionable clothes.

- Energy credits
- Planting native species in the landscape
