Green Living tips are important because living green is no longer an option... It is a necessity.  Sustainability should not be a foreign concept.  It is realistically achievable. Understandably everyone can't just wake up tomorrow and be the king/queen of living green, but steps can be taken.  Start using CFL light bulbs, install a faucet aerator and a low flow shower head or even look into rain barrels.   When you leave a room turn off the lights and save some energy.  Now is the time for you to start Living Green.  Hopefully the Gotta Go Green Now site will give you some informational tips and ideas on how to initiate a green living lifestyle and save you some $GREEN$ in the process.  DO YOUR PART. GO GREEN!
