Question of the Week: What trade offs would you be willing to make in your life to protect the environment?

Choices, choices, choices! We make them everyday. Sometimes we weigh our options and make sacrifices before making our choices. Perhaps you chose to use a reusable water bottle today instead of just grabbing a disposable bottled water. Other times we may decide the trade-off isn’t worth the effort. Tell us about trade offs you are willing to make to help protect the environment. Share your thoughts.
