No, I don't use these words. To be honest, I didn't even know most of them.

I've been away from America too long. Smile

Wow am I not hip.

I thought "going green" was something Miss Piggy did back in the 80's.

Every time I hear "carbon offset" I think of Al Gore. Whose picture always seems to remind me we have a Polar Bear to save. He needs to do a few "push away's" from the table. He is the FATTEST "green guy" I have ever seen.

I think "hybrid" cars should have made this list- they can reproduce just as well as a hot-rod Lincoln...

YES! I am so sick of attempts to appear "green"! Don't they call that "greenwashing" now? I just saw a commercial that told you it was "green" to buy their insurance, because since you apply entirely online it would save all those trees!

To me green still means 'inexperienced' and I admit I used maverick just the other day as in "Oh look! Maverick is on! I love that movie...."

Maybe "word" should be a banned sentence.

The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.--Yeats

I use companies that have the little clever symbols to tell me how green they are as a guide. I refuse to use their services.

By the way trees are great once they are dead.

We lived in the Florida Keys for 3 years. WOW you almost needed a permit from the EPA to mow your lawn for pity sake. They flew over in airplanes and took pictures of the mangroves, and if you had cut back more than a certain percentage, you got a HUGE fine. They have been "green" there for quite a while now.

I watched them stop a $100 million project for the sake of a new rat they found!
