What is "Green" Speech

Green Speech….
“Our Words Matter- Speak Responsibly.

Being “Green”!

Recycling, driving a hybrid car, reducing waste and shopping local produce are all ways we reduce the toxins & pollutants in our environment and help save the planet. Why not remove the toxins & pollutants from our speech as well? Protecting our well-being, relationships, families and communities from derogatory and negative words & speech and gossip can be just as beneficial as helping our physical environment.
