    We burn firewood for heat. Is that green enough?

    I know that was a snarky comment, but we resent government programs that try to change how we live in our own home. We have lived in the country for about 35 years and have always composted table scraps, grown our own vegetables, bought our meat local, used clothes lines or clothes racks, and restricted our use of electricity. Our use of the landfill is limited and we recyle or repair everything we can. We manage our own woodlot for firewood. Our motivation is not “social responsibility” but is based on budget constraints and a cheapskate mentality. We are not interested in being “green” nor having our home “certified green”.

    Hey Lucia,

    I didn’t think your comment was snarky at all. I would have replied “I don’t know.”

    You bring up a really good point, one that this poll doesn’t allow for: Making your home “green” isn’t always about new window, doors, appliances, light bulbs and the like. As you pointed out, it can be part of an overall lifestyle.

    By the way you described your lifestyle, it does seem like your concerned about being “green,” but just not in the “social responsibility” aspect as your explained.

    Thanks for your comment,
