If Columbus, Ohio Can Go Green, Anyone Can!

The city’s Get Green Columbus is setting an example with green building, local food, energy efficiency, planting trees and raising awareness.

When some people think Ohio certain things may come to mind: perhaps THE Ohio State University, with its major athletic rivalries and world-renowned research, or maybe major league sports franchises, or even perhaps a river so polluted it caught on fire (the Cuyahoga River of Cleveland). True, we Ohioans can sometimes be said to be responsible for selecting the President of the United States. But one of my favorite Ohio thoughts is something Jeff Foxworthy once said: “You might be from Ohio if you know all four seasons: winter, still winter, almost winter and construction!”

It’s fun to joke about states and their residents, and I know each has its own history of victories and embarrassments. But one thing I never expected to find out about this state I live in is how we are trying to pioneer living in a greener world.
