Living Green means making choices in our day-to-day lives that reduce our impact on the environment and move us in the direction of a sustainable lifestyle-one that is healthy, ecologically sound, economically viable and socially just.

Here's some links to practical solutions:

In SNAP's Living Green home parties, classes, and workshops, you will learn how to create and clean with  non-toxic cleaners; how to reduce waste by recycling, composting,  reducing consumption; transportation choices and maintenance, and how you can create a sustainable and healthy lifestyle.

Thinking Globally.  Act Locally.

This is the cornerstone of SNAP's Living Green Program. What you do in your home, classroom, office and neighborhood directly impacts the local & global community.  Creating a healthier lifestyle with less money, conserving resources for future generations, and aiming for a sustainable lifestyle are the keys to Living Green.
