I would say my initial reaction many years ago was because I was an idealist and wanted to save the planet. Now, I think money saving and health are my main goals, but always with the knowledge that I am making a small impact on improving our planet.

save the planet, then health concerns, then save money-in that order for me.

It's the same motivation I have to eat and sleep. No real motivation at all, it's a very basic part of my life. I grew up green, and the idea of a non-eco-friendly lifestyle is baffling to me.

 That's how I want my kids to be.

My initial reason was to be a tree hugging hippie, but now I do it for all the reasons listed.

Its crazy that being green is an 'alternative lifestyle' if it was mainstream we wouldnt have as many issues as we have now. Ppl baffle me:)

My daughter. It all started when I was pregnant. I want to leave a better planet for her. And it evolved from there.

What made me want to be more green was wanting what is best for my son, and wanting a healthy family.
