Lately, I have only bought things that are green. No, I don’t mean the color green. When we say that someone or something is green, we mean that they care for the environment, or that it is safe for the environment. For example, biodegradable laundry detergent. It is safe for the environment. Without regulation smog will increase, and that cannot be good for Earth’s atmosphere. With all the careless pollution these days, it is understandable that there are changes in our climate.
