Here are the ways one would go green, or live in a more energy efficient and cost efficient way for themselves, a better climate, and environment. These are fairly simple, they just need to become a habit. A lot of time it can't become a habit because we are so busy. This involves remembering to do these things and not all of us are in the best situations in that we are inclined to care.
However, even upon crappy non-progressive days we must care because a hurricane, twister, tornado, cyclone, tropical storms, tsunamis, or rising waters or flooding will not deter or stop because we're having a bad day or year. In my case, remember the Tropical Storm Floyd.
Going Green Involves
Household Energy Use
Unplug devices that are not being used. Turn off lights in rooms. Charge up devices to use them most of the day, which all saves energy and money on electric bills.
Invest in solar panels or just one. This reduces dependence on electricity and how much you pay for your electric bill.
Try to, TRY to drink kitchen sink water. This can mean making drinks like lemonades, teas, whatever drinks that you can create or ice water even.
Small is Good
Invest in a smaller house or a house that fits the needs for your family with small land. This reduces the waste and destruction of forest and land. Smaller homes keeps space from being wasted and save money and energy.
Commute, Bike, Walk and Reduce Emissions
This involves trains, buses, walking and cycling. This is is good for people living in a city or metro area where there are plenty of commuting means and businesses are under a mile or less.
Now in the South or towns where things can be miles away, we would need to decrease how often we have to drive to our stores and businesses. The way we can decrease commuting is by making a list of the things we need to get when going to the store. So, do a quick walk-through in the house to see what you need, make a list and then get everything in one fell swoop. Also, carpool to work if it is feasible.
Recycle and Reuse
We must use recycle bins. We must try to reuse plastics and glass for any reason we can think of.
Food Consumption and Gardening
Most of us in America dont have a problem with this. We don't waste food. Keeping food from waste is important, but is hard because it means being mindful of how much just you or you and your family consume which is excellently done by mothers and most of the rest of us suck at. We can master this I feel and refrain from allowing our foods to waste. We need to be mindful or what we use and how much of it we use when we invest in it.
Growing food is great. And it comes naturally for all the green thumbs, so grow foods. Grow vegetables that you like to eat. I am a broccoli, mushroom, green, yellow, red pepper, and spinach person. For the ones that can't grow foods, you can always visit your local farmer's market.
We have to use a trash can, trash barrel, trash bin, or trash bag when we are disposing of trash. It is common to drop it when walking because we don't want to carry it, but we must push ourselves to wait until we get to a trashcan. Trash gets into our waters which can cause health issues, death to lifeforms and animals, and also there can be an increase in rats, which is what we don't want because they are very smart creatures.
Okay, on this one I don't have too much to give on. Some people use vinegar and water to clean and something called Borax. However, baking soda is a good cleaning agent and so is hydrogen peroxide and micofiber cloths for cleaning.
Last: Spread the Word and Put Up A Reminder List
Encourage everyone to do these things and keep a short list as your daily reminder.
And there you have it, this is the green initiative for the individual who cares to embrace it. Habit is key even with me, and surely but certainly we will get to better environments.

It is evident we have a horrible president and administration. They sent missles over into a country thinking terrorism and terror can be bombed and afterwards it will all end or these individuals will yield. Terrorism comes from a deep-rooted shared individual place. It comes from past conflicts, wars, injustices, global neglect of oppressions, genocides, resource issues and so forth.
Terror is truly stopped by the individuals committing the acts of terrorism. Terror is not something we can go to war against. This was shown by the Iraq war. Terrorism consists of the decision to commit acts of violence and/or oppression based on a shared ideal. You can't kill an idea with a missile or bomb.
It takes other measures that involve attention, communication, a shared compromise, changes and so forth to stop an ideal. People have to want to or be motivated to change. Governments providing basic necessities such as education, jobs, healthcare, and equality can stop the rise in terrorism and even crime. Turning your back and being only the aggressor towards this behavior is not an option. As only neglect is what they anticipate and fight against.
Terrorist organizations or groups are not led by the dumb. These are often very smart and educated individuals with strong strategies and justifications for their actions. This means we must use stronger strategies as well and not commit and cause casualties directly or indirectly by striking various spots on the earth. Only if the terrorist group or organization is bold enough to walk the land in a unified army can their be an actual war, and one could possibly their use big shiny missiles.

Today administrations that were created to protect the environment and improve the way we use energy are being dismantled. This is a major blow to ending dependence on non-renewable energy. It is also stupid because of the harm this will continue to cause on the environment and to us.
Global warming and waste mismangement are causing flooding and contamination which leads to the decline in the health of all lifeforms. Trash, and the mismanagement of it, is still a major health and environmental problem. Where there are no systems in place to protect the environment, all lifeforms are at risk. This cut in the agencies that provide and encourage environmental support and renewable energy programs increases the need for activism.
Again we, the people of the world, have to come together to help each other protect the environment. It is unfair that we must change to protect the world for ourselves and future generations in that it is always on us to adjust or change. However we are the people, and when we change all things must change with us.
