I'm Tired of Green.

I'm not trying to say that I want to kill the earth, or destroy the ozone, or leave a polluted mess for my grandkids to take care of, but I'm so tired of this "green" craze that's going on right now. I do think that in the future, green will be the only way, there won't be a differentiation between the green products and non-green products because they will all be environmentally friendly in some way or another... but right now, green is trendy. You can't go anywhere without having green shoved down your throat. There are so many things labeled "green" I wonder if it has become another subjective term like "low fat". I feel like you are not cool unless you buy "green", live "green", talk "green"... I feel guilty every time I go shopping if I don't buy the "green" product, like I'm going to be personally responsible for destroying the earth. They just promoted a news report about "green" clothing. Are you telling me I can't buy regular clothes anymore? I'm ready for green to no longer be trendy... for people to use green because there is no other option, that's just what you do, and it doesn't define your "cool" factor.

Thank you!! Yes, I am tired of thinking green all the time. I haven't thought about this much green since I outgrew Kermit and the Muppets.
I agree...I do think that in the future it will be the norm of how we shop, buy, build and design, which is great. Unfortunately it's going to take some time for EVERYONE to come around to this way of thinking. I'm not heavily involved into politics but I do see some snarky suppliers and/or manufacturers looking for loopholes in order to avoid the high cost of going green. Do we really think those good-old petroleum boys in Houston want to loose the ability to buy brand new massive Ford Excursions or those ridiculous Hummers every year? Not if they can help it! Anyway....going green will be painful for some but in the end it will be worth it. I do wonder what the next buzz word will be when "green" becomes blah and boring......

I have an update!! I was watching The Biggest Loser on TV last night and the whole episode was about going green....including the commercials breaks. Everyone had to excercise without electricity (i.e. no treadmills) and the challenge was hauling aluminum cans to a recycle bin. By the way...the winner of the recycle challenge won a hybrid SUV.

I have to admit I was disappointed a I watched my NBC shows this week to have their personal green political agenda shoved down my throat. Every show, no matter what the plot, awkwardly placed some sort of "green" message. I wonder how many watchers abandoned their non-green lifestyle for the new ideas they learned by watching NBC this week?
