What Does Going Green Really Mean?

Michaela Labriole from Informal Science Confidential raises the question: what does “Going Green” really mean for you and your students?

One of my biggest pet peeves is when people stick anything possibly related to the environment under the overall heading of going green. Please don’t get me wrong, I think it is great to encourage students and adults to think about their impact on the environment and to be better stewards of the Earth. At the same time, lumping all environmental problems together without providing more information or context can lead to misconceptions and misinformation. Plus, it is a wasted opportunity to delve deeper into topics of environmental concern.
