I'm finding that lots of different people have lots of different interpretations as to what this means.  For some it is just about recycling religiously, some it is about disconnecting downspouts, and for some it is going off grid.  So, for you, what does it entail? How do you feel you are "going green"?

Disconnecting from industrial capitalism, basically.

 

Primary focus is on reducing consumer behavior. Freedom from social constraints that dictate that it's not OK to wear mended clothing, that the doctor is the source for wellness, that entertainment must be purchased, that femininity is high-maintenance, that a day without electricity is a crisis, etc.

 

It's a set of values that I use to guide my behavior in all ways, to the best of my ability. What doesn't work for me today maybe I can implement in the future, getting ever closer to the goal of realizing economy, satisfaction, and meaning from nature rather than corporations. No "green" behavior is off the table from my perspective, only some things are beyond my ability at the moment.
