How Green Are You?




After taking a trip today to Whole Foods I thought I'd take a small survey of my readers on how green you are. I by no means am the source for all things green but I like to think if everyone makes a concerted effort we can help to "save/prolong" the Earth.

Whole Foods has really done a great job and I love going to their stores, even if it means a higher price point. You really do get quality food and a large product offering that is so hard to come by here in NYC.

Since being Green has been such a buzz word over the past few years I feel like it's about time to jump on the bandwagon.


Below I will conduct a poll in which I will start the trend of copying and pasting the poll into the comments section and take the poll. (I suggest you follow suit!)




1. Do you recycle?
A. Yes, I seek out recycling areas wherever I am and consider myself to be conscious of separating paper/plastic/glass.
B. Yes I recycle at home but there is an occasion when I may throw away recyclables
C. I recycle on occasion, it is not something that I am cognizant of.
D. What is recycling?


2. If going you're going a mile in Manhattan and not in a rush (Not Snowing or Raining) would you rather:
A. Walk/Bike
B. Pedicab (Who really takes those anyways?)
C. Subway/Bus
D. Taxi/Personal Car

3. If going 2+ miles in the same conditions:
A. Walk/Bike
C. Subway/Bus
D. Taxi/Personal Car

4.) When buying groceries do you bring your own bag?
A. Of course, I even have canvas bags with stupid sayings on them.
B. Sometimes, whenever it's convenient for me.
C. I ask for paper bags
D. Give me those damn plastic bags already, and double bag em!

5.) What is your opinion on clean energy?
A. My house is solar cell equipped/ I drive an electric car.
B. I'd buy solar cells if they were more affordable and cost efficient/ I drive a Hybrid.
C. Lets move to Holland and live amongst the windmills and wooden shoes/I drive a car with at least 25 mpg
D. I love fossil fuels and give me the biggest gas guzzler you've got!

(If you have this then you're the coolest person i know)

6.) The U.S. should focus on this issue with the next 20 years in mind.
A. Clean/Renewable Energy
B. Foreign Policy
C. Education
D. Health care reform

7.) Drinking Water
A. I drink tap/filtered water out of a reusable container
B. I buy bottled water but I recycle the bottles I do buy
C. I buy bottled water and could care less if they end up in the garbage.

8.) Electricity
A. If the tv is on I will turn the lights off because the ambient light is enough.
B. Whenever I leave the room I turn off the lights/tv/fan/ac
C. There is an occasion when I may leave an appliance on but its far and few between.
D. I leave the air conditioning on at all times. Because I hate being at an uncomfortable temp.

That's about all I could think of right now.. I've been busy watching the first football game of the season and can't think of much more. I may amend this later. Stay tuned.
