Going Green doesn’t mean depriving yourself of the simple joys in life. It is not about sitting in the darkness to save energy, or not throwing anything out because you are feeling guilty about creating more trash.
You might remember that I had the chance to go to the OKU job fair this time last year. I’m happy to report that the three OKU employees we hired have managed to integrate perfectly into the working world, taking to their new roles with enthusiasm.
The phrase “Going Green” might sound intimidating to some, and it’s easy to understand why. In many cases, it is used to refer to large-scale, corporate effort to be more eco-friendly. Even so though, it can be quite easy for even a small household to go green.
