The Most Important Reason to Go Green

Helping create a sustainable earth is important to each and every person on the planet, whether they will admit it or not.  There are many reasons going green is important, from lowering utility bills to stopping the effects of global warming, but what is the most important reason? We set out to find the answer by asking our readers what the most important reason to go green was, according to them.  The response was impressive and it was clear that many of you are very passionate about this issue.  As we explore the results of our online poll, remember that the reason is not as important as the action, so do your part to create a sustainable earth.

The Most Important Reason to Go Green is….

Top reason to go greenEarlier in the year, setup an online poll asking our readers to help find, “the most important reason to go green.”  The poll had four possible answers to choose from, “lower monthly utility bills,” “to reduce air pollution and greenhouse gases,” “to stop global warming and its effects” or “make the planet livable for future generations.”   While there wasn’t a wrong answer to the question, we were more interested in what people felt the most important reason was.  Interestingly, the question about stopping global warming was the least favorable answer, garnering only 7.69 percent of the votes.  Second place went to lowering utility bills with a strong 23.08 percent of the vote.  And now for the drum roll please…  With over 53 percent of the total votes, making the planet livable for future generations was the most important reason to go green, according to our readers.

There is a lot that can be said from the reason that our respondents chose.  The most important reason was not something that was tangible to them, but for our children.  We were proud of our readers and their humble choice, while lowering utility bills was important, it was a distant second when compared to the compassion shown in the top choice.  Creating a sustainable earth for future generations gives us hope of a cleaner and bright future.  As we said above, it is not the reason that is important but your actions, so make them count.
