Green Living

What will come up to your mind when you think of “GREEN”?

A luxuriant tree that allows you to lie down underneath without getting sunburnt? Or vegetables on your food plate? Or is it simply a color? “Green” is not just a color. It can be a lifestyle of living in simple and eco-friendly ways. It helps reduce wastes and protect our environment in long run.
