As I’ve said a million times, conservatism and conservation can go hand-in-hand. As working women, we’ve got a lot on our plates, but that doesn’t mean we have to sacrifice the environment. I pride myself on finding new ways to be “green” as a working woman who simply has to get to work, has to eat a lunch, et cetera. But being “busy” and “on the go” and “hard working” is no excuse for being a trash rat who doesn’t recycle or car about the Earth. So, here are ten easy tips to staying “green” when you’re a working woman who is always on the go. Trust me, your conscious and the Earth will thank you in the long run.
