The idea of making green lifestyle changes may be unfamiliar territory to some. Even the phrase "going green" may conjure images of things like off-grid living, reliance on only solar or wind power, vegan diets, or insistence on purchasing organic everything – which may seem extreme.
However, even the smallest changes in your daily habits – like not leaving the faucet on as long or turning off electronics when you're done with them – will make a difference. Here is a list of nearly 200 suggestions for things you could do to live a little greener.
