There are lots of ways to focus on your own health and also the health of the environment by going green this week! Here are our top 5 Super Healthy Ideas for Going Green this St. Patrick’s Day:

Healthy green vegetables
  • 1) Use your Feet! For places that are within reasonable walking distance, put on some comfortable shoes and walk or bike.
  • 2) Drink Smarter.  Instead of disposable water bottles, try using a reusable bottle.
  • 3) Grow a Garden.  This ensures that you get healthy and natural fruits and vegetables, and gives back to the environment in the process.
