Sustainable lifestyles are ones that take all areas of "green" into account. In doing so, the emphasis is on reducing the use of natural resources and using renewable energy, eating locally grown food and choosing "green" products and materials.

Hi Laura - I recently moved to Santa Fe, NM, so am not connected so much with the area you are looking at. I hope one of the other advisers will be able to help :) Best wishes, Jane

Cathy asked:

What's the most challenging thing for the average consumer when going green?
Etta Kantor answered:
05/18/2012

Hello Cathy, I believe one of the most challenging things that the average consumer faces when going green is dealing with higher costs. It requires some creative thinking, shopping around and making compromises. But the more we support "green" products the lower the costs will be. Thank you, Etta
