Living the Green Life is the kickoff article in the just-announced year long H&G series in which the staff will live the green life, reporting on the ways in which they were able to realistically integrate more eco-concious lifestyle choices into their homelife.

We love this idea and can't wait to read more - upcoming installments will document the staffers experiences and will include interviews with green-living people across the country.

To start things off, they have compiled a list of things we can all do to conserve and the effect that it will have - one household at a time. It addresses the question of personal impact - does one person's efforts really count?

Also from H&G this week:

To-do list:
To See: "Arte Textil Maya" at the National Museum of Mexican Art.
To Watch: A new HGTV show, Living with Ed.
To Recycle: Suggested disposal guidelines for compact flourescent bulbs can be found at www.earth911.org by plugging in your zip code.

Green, piece by piece: Takes a look at how a few big-box retailers (and one small local one) are selling green to their customers.

Dishing: Ron Bilaro suggests two stuffed pepper recipes - "they will fill you home with heavenly aromas".

Exteme Makeover:Home Edition: A tv home renovation show comes to Chicago. The renovation of a two flat on the southwest side was completed thanks to donations from local retailers and artists.
