Ever darned a sock, cut down an adult-sized shirt or dress and remade it for a child, cultivated a garden, canned or frozen produce, or made a quilt from scraps of old clothing?

Most of us are aware that sustained work is going to be needed to make the systemic changes that are necessary to halt global warming and to see that justice prevails as our resources diminish.

Through self-examination and helpful tips for making these changes into a lifestyle, this study can help get participants leading a very green life.
