The news is out and it is not good. If we do not get serious about the environment, about going green and protecting the world in which we live, the consequences are dire. Oh, you say, you cannot do much about this huge problem-you are just one person. The government and big business needs to take on this responsibility. Well, that is bunk and every thinking person knows it, says author and environmentalist Alicia Marie Smith. What it does take is a bit of time, commitment and some thoughtful decisions about the products you buy, what you do with them when they are used up and how you think and feel about the entire process of going green. If whole cities are doing it, surely each person can make small efforts in this crucial battle with junk, bad environmental policies and the so-called inconveniences of going and staying green. Get involved; get committed; get educated. Join the most important movement of the 21st century-and become a citizen of the world in your own little way.
