After seeing The Complete Tightwad Gazette book on our Mother's Day special (25 Books Your Mom Secretly Wants) post it's clear that the US's current recession, exploding gas prices and rising food costs (see Sam's Clubs / Walmarts limits on buying rice) have fully taken over peoples minds. Has green taken a back seat? Major media doesn't think so and continues to focus on this latest trend. Americans on the other hand are talking about other things including ways to cut back even more. What many don't realise is trimming the fat and being green can go hand in hand. Such as growing a garden and eating healthier while helping to cut down on the need for food to be trucked in. Riding a bicycle or walking instead of using a car. Giving gifts that are truly meaningful instead of buying many filler gifts in an attempt to awe.
