GREEN. It's not just a colour. Its grassroots lie in the Old English word "grene", an adjective closely related to the Old English verb "growan" meaning "to grow". It has cultural, religious, scientific and biological connotations. It is a language, a philosophy, a way of life. In the green scheme of things, going green is your first step to reducing environmental impacts and saving the planet.
