Fresh Greens: Teens and the Environment
What does it mean to be green? That's what we asked fellow teens from around the country. Their responses surprised us.
From Anchorage, Alaska to Portland, Maine, teens see green as more than remembering to recycle. Green, they told us, is not about the color of their skin, or how much they donate to Greenpeace. It's about listening to immigrants' experiences, to environmental leaders and to that voice inside. And it's about believing that one person can make a difference, and then spreading the word.
