Terms such as "carbon footprint" and "sustainability" now flow into our daily conversations with ease, and forgetting your reusable tote at the grocery store gives onset to overwhelming guilt. Deb Wandell of The San Francisco Chronicle explores some of the differences on how we live now vs. the past decade. Can you guess what they are?

As written on SF Gate, Deb Wandell's article How We Live Now: A shift In The Landscape explores 10 areas of the home and garden in which we've made notable developments in regards to the environment. See the entire article for explanations and more at SF Gate.com.
