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:
