If you happen to be a Michigan State fan, then you know "Go Green" is part of the school's battle cry, but for most folks, Go Green has become a familiar reference to the effort made my an individual or an organization to minimize our society's pollution and carbon footprint. Initially, “going green” sounds like a herculean effort requiring significant changes to one's lifestyle, however this isn't always the case. Being planet-friendly can come from simple changes such as recycling and using natural light instead of electricity. For car owners, going green is becoming much easier. Car companies are developing planet-friendly technology that minimizes pollution caused by gas-powered vehicles.
